Dr Josiah Ensing


Fields of interest:

Seismic signal processing, geohazards, seismic noise, machine learning, seismic tomography


Dr Ensing is a seismologist in the Seismic Sensors group at AstroCeNT.

He obtained a Bachelor’s degree (2013) from the University of Waikato, New Zealand, where he received the Earth and Ocean Sciences Excellence Award (2011) and the Waikato Regional Council Water Sciences Prize (2012).

He later completed a Master’s degree (2015) for which was as awarded the Sagar Geophysics Prize and then completed a PhD at the University of Auckland (2020) on a University of Auckland Doctoral Scholarship.

From November 2020, Dr Ensing works as a seismologist at the Nicolaus Copernicus Astronomical Center of the Polish Academy of Sciences, in the seismic sensors group at AstroCeNT.

Main scientific interests:

Dr Ensing’s interests include seismic signal processing, geohazards, connections between astronomy and geohazards, seismic noise, machine learning, and seismic tomography.

The projects he is currently involved in include the development of seismic data analysis tools, a mobile seismic and environmental sensor, infra sound monitoring for gravitational wave observatories, and investigation of fiber networks as seismic sensors.
