Koper has served as associate professor and professor in the department of geology and geophysics at the University of Utah (United States), and director of the University of Utah Seismograph Stations (UUSS), since 2010. He has been a member of the U.S. Air Force Seismic Review Panel since 2011 and is now chair of the Utah Seismic Safety Commission since serving on the Commission since 2010. He was an associate editor for the Bulletin of the Seismological Society of America from 2003 to 2010 and co-chair of the organizing committee for the 2013 SSA Annual Meeting. Koper worked in 2017 on the SSA subcommittee to update a joint statement by SSA and the American Geophysical Union on the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty, and has served as member and chair of SSA’s Charles F. Richter Early Career Award subcommittee from 2018 to the present.

His research interests and publications focus on array seismology, Earth’s ambient seismic noise field, forensic seismology and exotic sources, rupture imaging of giant earthquakes, seismicity and tectonics of the intermountain West, mining induced earthquakes, and the structure and dynamics of Earth’s deep interior, especially the core.

She received her Ph.D. in geosciences from Scripps Institution of Oceanography, University of California, San Diego in 2001.

In her role as TSR Deputy Editor-in-Chief, Schulte-Pelkum works with the Editor-in-Chief on all aspects of the journal editorial process and serves as member of the journal’s leadership team.

Jeroen Ritsema, Editor-at-Large

Ritsema is a University of Michigan (United States) professor of geophysics and seismology. His research involves the imaging of Earth’s mantle through global scale seismic tomography and the modeling of broadband seismograms. He received his Ph.D. in geophysics from the University of California, Santa Cruz in 1995.

As TSR Editor-at-Large, he works closely with the Editor-in-Chief to recruit relevant, high-impact research for submission to the journal, serving in an ambassador role representing the journal globally within the seismology and earthquake science community.
