Curriculum Vitae


I have accumulated some experience in seismic data processing, seismic wave propagation modeling, and measurement and inversion of travel times obtained from finite-frequency waveforms. I focus on using seismic waveforms to investigate the velocity structure of the Earth, and engaging in studying earthquake source processes and earthquake physics based on analysis of seismograms.
