Gordana Vlahovic (Ph.D., University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill) is professor and chair at the Department of Environmental, Earth and Geospatial Sciences. Her primary research interests are in the areas of seismotectonics and geohazards.
She has worked extensively on the imaging of the intraplate seismic zones in North America using tomography and potential field methods. Her secondary research interests are in geoscience education. At NCCU, she spearheaded the creation of an online Environmental and Geographic Sciences program, successful applications for geoscience program designation as NGA/USGS Center of Academic Excellence in Geospatial Sciences, and USGIF accreditation of GEOINT certificates.
