Associate Scientists 

The IEVPC is honored to have received the support of many scientists and researchers, some of whom are the world's leaders in their innovative approaches to the prediction of earthquakes and related geophysical events. Here is a partial list:

Dr. Giovanni Gregori

Dr. Giovanni Gregori, Italy. Dr. Gregori is one of the world’s leading scientists in the field of crustal stress measurement and earthquake prediction with acoustical techniques with hundreds of published papers in the field. He holds a 'laurea' in physics and PhD from the University of Milan. He is an expert in gnoseologic foundations of theoretical physics. Since 1963 he has served at the National Research Council of Italy, at IFA, the Istituto di Fisica dell 'Atmosfera and the Istituto di Acustica e Sensoristica in Rome. He has also done extensive research into the interaction of the Earth’s magnetosphere and solar wind. He has established himself as a senior authority on the Earth’s total electromagnetic environment. He is an Associate of the Royal Astronomical Society, a Honorary Member of the Deutsche Geophysikalische Gesellschaft e. V., Arbeitskreis Gesichte der Geophysik, and is on the Editorial board of the journal, "History of Geophysics and Space Science" of EGU.

Dr. Fumio Tsunoda

Dr. Fumio Tsunoda, Japan.
Dr. Tsunoda is Professor Emeritus at the National Saitama University, Japan. He holds a PhD in Geology from the University of Tokyo. He is a leading expert on the volcanic and seismic history and science of Japan and has specialized in geothermal processes deep within the Earth as causes for these events. He has had thirty five peer reviewed papers and sixteen books in the field. He formulated the VE process for tracking and predicting earthquakes.

Dr. Zhongao Shou

Dr. Zhonghao Shou. (China/US) Dr. Shou, holds a PhD in Chemistry and has an established international reputation for accurate earthquake prediction based on special cloud formations that appear over earthquake prone areas. He correctly predicted 2003 Iran M6.8 Bam earthquake and as a result, he was invited to contribute a chapter to the 16th volume of Seminars of the United Nations Programme on Space Applications. He has submitted 50 predictions to the United States Geological Survey, each prediction with a time, location, and magnitude window. 68% are correct in all three windows. The probability of achieving the same prediction record from random guessing is 1/16,000. He was awarded a US patent (US 8,068,985B1) "Method of precise earthquake prediction and prevention of mysterious air and sea accidents" on November 29, 2011.

Dr. Masashi Hayakawa

Dr. Masashi Hayakawa,
Japan. He is Emeritus Prof. at the Advanced Wireless Communications Research Center and Research Station on Seismo Electromagnetics, Univ. of Electro-Communications, Tokyo, Japan. He is an expert in the detection of pending earthquakes through electromagnetic signals.

Dr. Natarajan Venkatanathan

Dr. Natarajan Venkatanathan, India. He holds a PhD in Earthquake Prediction from the University of Madras. His focus is on earthquake prediction based on planetary configuration. At present he is a member of the faculty at SASTRA University in Thanjavur, India.


Mr. Valentino Straser

Mr. Valentino Straser is an expert in electromagnetic signatures for earthquakes. His specialization in the use of radio anomaly tracking and the Interplanetary Magnetic Field (IMF) variations for earthquake prediction has permitted him to accurately predict some earthquakes >M6.0.


Dr. Arun Bapat

Dr. Arun Bapat is one of the world's leading seismologists. He has held many positions of authority in India in support of that country's seismic research efforts. He is the author of over 250 research papers, 300 articles in English and 500 articles in Hindi and Marathi languages. He has done seminal work in Indian tsunami research and correctly identified the location and magnitude of the 2001 Gujarat and 2004 Andaman earthquakes. He has been widely called upon by many countries to provide his expertise to include the establishment of earthquake monitoring systems. He has been routinely quoted by leading newspapers and other media throughout the world and has been a visiting professor at Adelaide University in Australia and the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences in Sofia.
