Biography

Gordana Vlahovic (PhD, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill) is associate professor of earth science at the North Carolina Central University. She was born in Croatia where she studied physics at the University of Zagreb. Dr. Vlahovic's primary research interests are in the area of seismotectonics and geohazards. She has worked extensively on the imaging of the intraplate seismic zones in North America by using tomography and potential field methods. Her secondary research interest is in geoscience education.
