VERTIC welcomes Dr. Neil Selby to the consultants network

VERTIC is very pleased to welcome Dr. Neil Selby to the International Verification Consultants Network. This exclusive network of prominent arms control and environment experts assists the Executive Director in his strategic planning, and also gives advice on VERTIC publications.

Neil is principal seismologist in the Forensic Seismology team at AWE Blacknest. He joined AWE in 1999 after completing a B.Sc. in geophysics at the University of Durham and a D.Phil in seismology at the University of Oxford. The forensic seismology team at Blacknest provides technical advice to the UK government on the monitoring of the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT). Neil regularly publishes papers in learned journals on treaty monitoring topics, and is a frequent member of international expert groups and workshops on technical issues related to the CTBT. Neil's current research interests include signal detection, and the use of seismological techniques to distinguish earthquakes and explosions.

Andreas Persbo, VERTIC’s Executive Director, said ‘I am very pleased to welcome Dr Selby to the network. He is the latest in a very distinguished line of AWE advisors to the charity. Dr. Selby will bring expert advice on test ban issues to us, and I am very much looking forward to working with him in the years to come’.
