Tieyuan Zhu received his Ph.D. degree in Geophysics from Stanford University in 2014. Tieyuan is an exploration seismologist who seeks to solve challenging energy and environment problems using seismic waves. His interests include advancing understanding of physics of seismic wave propagation in real Earth media (particularly seismic attenuation), time-reversal, seismic inversion & imaging, time-lapse monitoring, and microseismic.
