Research interests
      My interests lie primarily in exploring various tectonic problems seismologically and gaining better understanding of multi-scale Earth structure from shallow to deep, which includes a wide range of topics such as regional structural kinematics, unusual earthquake sequences, mountain building process, 3-D slab interaction, volcanic plumbing system, and inner core structure. The main technical focus is on improving seismic imaging through multi-dataset joint inversion, waveform inversion, and body-wave seismic interferometry. In the meantime, I also work on earthquake rupture directivity and time-lapse environmental monitoring for earthquake and landslide hazard mitigation. My works can be summarized in some aspects as below. To whom might be interested, please click on the individual links below for more details:

Prospective partners
      I am always looking for students and postdocs enthusiastic about exploring Earth structure and various seismotectonic topics (as listed above but not limited to)! Institute of Earth Science, Academia Sinica has strong multidisciplinary faculty, various professional facilities, and a highly international environment. You will be able to play with abundant data sets (some of them are fairly unique) from our maintaining networks including seismic, GPS, strainmeter, and infrasound arrays. Nankang is also a good place for people who would like to live with a balance between city and mountains, where you can keep a bit distance from busy tempo of city but are still convenient enough to access the modern beauty of Taipei. If you are interested in joining us, please find more information on our website and the international graduate program (TIGP). After reading those information, feel free to email me for opportunities or further questionsApplicants who have strong curiosity and good programing/mathematics background are particularly preferred.
