Research Topics:
  • Marine Geophysics
  • Seismology

Current Research:

I am interested in both seismic source studies (e.g., detection, location, source mechanism, rupture process, seismic classification) and Earth's structure inversion (e.g., seismic tomography, full-waveform inversion, reverse-time migration). My current research focuses on the topics as below:

  • develop novel methods for seismic detection, location, and characterization
  • classify quakes near Canada‚Äôs coasts (e.g., earthquakes and landslides)
  • image seismic structure offshore Canada using OBS data
  • assess seismic and tsunami hazard risk
