Hejun ZhuPostdoctoral Fellow, Jackson School of Geosciences
I am a computational and structure seismologist interested in various aspects of solid-earth geophysics, especially in developing advanced imaging techniques to infer the internal structure of the Earth. My studies combine seismology, geology, applied mathematics and high-performance computing to investigate physical properties of Earth materials, such as wavespeeds, attenuation, anisotropy and discontinuities. These results play essential roles in both hydrocarbon exploration and understanding thermal and compositional evolution of the Earth interior.
Areas of Expertise
Seismic inversion based on full wavefield information; Statistic inverse problems and uncertainty quantification; Seismic structure of the crust and upper mantle; Numerical simulations of seismic wave propagation
