Mike Kendall is the BGS Professor of Geophysics in the School of Earth Sciences at the University of Bristol. He has a PhD in Geophysics from Queen's University in Canada and he was a NSERC postdoctoral fellow at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography in the USA. He has held faculty positions at the Universities of Toronto and Leeds, and he worked briefly for Chevron Canada Resources in Calgary. He is currently president of the British Geophysical Association and is past vice-president (Geophysics) of the Royal Astronomical Society. Mike's research covers pure and applied seismology, with connections to mineral physics, geodynamics and engineering, and he has published over 160 papers in leading journals. He has led seismic field experiments in geologic settings ranging from cratons to active rifts. In exploration seismology his interests lie in passive seismic monitoring, rock-fracture characterization, and linked geophysics, geomechanics and fluid-flow modelling. He has managed a number of large industry-funded consortia, including the Bristol University Microseismicity Projects (BUMPS).
