About

I am a seismologist specialized on imaging the earth's internal structure and dynamics using elastic waves produced by earthquakes. Over the years I've developed or improved a set of computing-intensive signal detection techniques to process terabyte-scale digital data. I also conducted research on the spatial and temporal distributions of earthquakes.
