Allow me to introduce myself. I am a data-driven experimental-computational seismologist. My research revolves around developing novel computational technologies for geophysics and geosciences, to learn about the time-varying properties of the earth, at a variety of scales, and for a variety of earth and environmental issues.
I currently work as Geophysical Research Consultant for the Geoscience Research Center of Total E&P in Aberdeen, and enjoy visitor status in the School of Geosciences at the University of Edinburgh.
For my work on reservoir-scale passive seismic interferometry and imaging I received a PhD degree from Stanford University in 2014. Subsequently, on a Fellowship of the CAS, I was a Research Fellow at the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) where my research shifted to seismic wave field gradiometry. From 2015 to 2017, I was the Whittaker Research Fellow for Industry at the University of Edinburgh, where my main research focussed on wave field inversion of the ambient seismic wavefield for subsurface structure.
I have been awarded the J. Clarence Karcher Award of the SEG (2017) in recognition of my work on utilising surface waves from ambient noise for exploration seismology.
