Lawrence (Larry) Hutchings is partner and lead scientist at Jarpe Data Solutions, providing micro-earthquake analysis for reservoir modeling and micro-zonation for earthquake hazards. Previously from 2007 to 2016 he served as a Staff Scientist at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL), and from 1986 to 2007 he was a Research Scientist at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. His focus has been geothermal reservoir modeling and methods to develop design ground motions for hazard studies for critical infra-structure. Prior to this, he worked for 10 years in industry evaluating earthquake hazards for nuclear reactor and conventional power facilities. He also has several patents in human navigation and owned a start-up company between 2001 and 2007. He has taken a personal interest in mentoring students and has been a mentor for more than 50 interns. He has also worked extensively with scientists and students in developing countries and has advised 10 PhD’s and Master’s students on his research topics.
