Bio

Prof. Richard E. A. Robertson is a Geologist and Volcanologist who has worked in the Caribbean region for over 30 years. He studied Geology at UWI Mona Campus, Jamaica (BSc.), Volcanology at the University of Leeds in the UK (MPhil) and completed his PhD in Geology at UWI Mona Campus, Jamaica. Born in St Vincent, Prof. Richard Robertson joined the staff at the Seismic Research Centre in 1993 after serving for six years as Head of the local volcano-monitoring unit in St. Vincent (the Soufriere Monitoring Unit). He served several tours of duty as Chief Scientist of the Montserrat Volcano Observatory during the period 1995-1999 and was its Director from October 1998 – March 1999. Prof. Robertson served as Head of the Seismic Research Unit during the period 2004-2008 and as Director of the Seismic Research Centre from 2008-2011 and 2013-2019. Since joining the Seismic Research Centre he has been involved in a variety of activities including: the establishment of volcano monitoring networks (mainly geodetic); ongoing public education and outreach campaigns throughout the Eastern Caribbean; the ongoing eruption of the Soufriere Hills Volcano on Montserrat and the recent eruption of La Soufriere Volcano on St. Vincent. He has worked in most aspects of the SRC operations but has been most closely associated with its public education, hazards assessment, ground deformation and geothermal monitoring programs. His research interests include all aspects of volcanic hazard and risk, the evolution of volcanism in the Eastern Caribbean, and public engagement in science. He has a keen interest in the dissemination of scientific information to vulnerable island communities and in building capacity at the community level to cope with hazards.
