I am a Texaco Postdoctoral Scholar in Division of Geological and Planetary Sciences at Caltech. As a geophysicist, my ultimate goal is to understand the Earth’s dynamics by examining the source processes and Earth’s structure. My Ph.D. and postdoctoral research cover a wide range of topics in seismology, including earthquake rupture, landslides, near-surface seismic structure, mantle transition zone, rheological structure from asthenosphere to upper mantle, and seismic hazard assessment.
