I am a seismologist with broad interests in Earth's mantle structures, particularly those associated with subduction zones. My recent work includes imaging seismic structures of the Tonga and Alaska subduction zones, intermediate-depth seismicity, and the mantle transition zone. One of my major interests in methodology is seismic attenuation. Meanwhile, I use various seismic/geophysical techniques to study mantle discontinuities, subduction zones, and melt/volatiles in the mantle. I like to collect fresh data from temporary seismic deployment (fun field work!), and I also work on global dataset.

I'm looking for talented graduate students and postdocs! If you are interested in subduction zones and/or mantle structures, or if you are enthusiastic about field work (on-shore or off-shore), you are welcome to consider joining my group. Please email me your CV and your research interests. Some tips are listed here. More general information for prospective students can be found here.
