Seismotectonics and regional tectonic reconstruction

I am interested in exploring and reconstructing the regional tectonics in various aspects. Conducted issues, for instance, include constructing the structural kinematic model of northeastern Taiwan by spatial analyses of seismicity and stress (Huang et al., 2012), delineating the complex Moho geometry in Taiwan arc-continent collision system using Genetic-algorithm 1D velocity inversion and local tomography mapping technique (Ustaszewski et al., 2012), and proposing an ongoing tectonic erosion process of forearc basement beneath the southernmost Longitudinal Valley, based on local tomographic images and two earthquake sequences in the eastern Taiwan (Shyu et al., 2011).
