Director of Research and Development

Doctorate in Chemistry, University of British Columbia, 1994
Bachelor of Science in Chemistry, with minors in Mathematics and Computer Science, University of Montana, 1986

Current Position:
Stephanie A. Isbell is Director of Research and Development at Echotech Geophysical. She is responsible for direction and organization of research related to applied chemical physics, especially modeling of the behavior of target chemicals and matrix materials.

Research Experience:
Materials science investigations of the diffusion of petrochemicals in living tissue and in industrially important (proprietary) materials using nuclear magnetic resonance imaging. Her basic research on imaging techniques involving qualitative evaluation and quantitative analysis of petrochemicals in these diverse materials is directly applicable to resistivity imaging of water and petrochemicals in the host materials for pipelines and storage devices (see references below).

Solar event coordinator for the American Association of Variable Star Observers, reporting monthly to the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration. Stephanie collated and interpreted data from international observers of Very Low Frequency (VLF) and Short Wave (SW) events (signal fades) caused by solar flares. Features of the frequency responses of radio signals were correlated with the energy signatures of solar flares. This general knowledge is applicable to addressing the possible technical difficulties of resistivity monitoring related to ionization of water by solar radiation.
