Logan A. Fusso

Logan Fusso joined DGGS' Mineral Resources team as a Geophysicist in December of 2023. Originally from Washington State, Logan earned his B.S. in Geology from Western Washington University in 2011. After a few years as a field technician for the Washington State Department of Natural Resources Statemap and Geothermal Research teams, as well as a stint as a LiDAR technician with Quantum Spatial, he rejoined the world of academia at University of Alaska Fairbanks in 2019. He studied towards a Master's in Geophysics, specializing in Geodesy. His thesis project focused on InSAR remote sensing of volcanoes and volcanic processes. His research in remote sensing deformation techniques was noticed by the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory, and he was offered a position as their deformation technician as he finished his M.Sc. in Geophysics at UAF. Besides deploying GNSS sensors and post-processing data for the annual campaign, Logan spent ~2 years working with the HVO on deploying field instruments and upgrading geophysical instruments for volcanic monitoring systems. He's happy to be back in Fairbanks to assist with the Mineral Resources team on a variety of projects. When Logan is not at work, he enjoys backcountry adventures with his wife and friends. You might find him climbing, floating rivers, and even surfing, depending on the season.
