Biography

I am an Earthquake seismologist and my research interests focus on: continent formation and modification dynamics, array Seismology, and multiple scale isotropic and anisotropic velocity structure imaging. Mainly I use the following seismic techniques: P- and S-wave travel-time tomography, surface waveform tomography, P- and S-wave receiver functions, Shear wave splitting, Ambient noise tomography, and Spectral Element and ajoint methods in regional cases.

Research interests

Currently I am working on the following projects:

1) Passive Seismic Survey in the Capricorn Orogen, Western Australia, in collaboration with the Geological Survay of Western Australia, and the CET the University of Western Australia, 2013-2017: focusing on isotropic and anisotopic shear wave structure in the Capricorn Orogen upper mantle. Two phases of 80 broadband stations will be deployed during 3-4 years;

2) Upper mantle anisotropic shear wave structure of the south China block, in collaboration with the Institute of Geology and Geophysics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, 2014-2017: involving Spectral Element and Adjoint methods to numerically invert for upper mantle seismic structure in the Yangtze and Cathaysia blocks;

3) Anisotropic stratification in Earth's upper mantle using a combination of seismological approaches, in collaboration with the global seismological group at Berkeley Seismological Laboratory, UC Berkeley: including the whole upper mantle of the Earth for the global view, and individual continents and oceans for better lateral resolution.
