Xinming received an engineering degree (2009) in Geophysics from Central South University, an M.Sc. (2012) in Geophysics from Tongji University, and a Ph.D. (2016) in Geophysics from the Colorado School of Mines where he was a member of the Center for Wave Phenomena. He interned twice at Transform Software and Services/DrillingInfo during the summer and winter of 2014. Since Aug. 2015, he has been working at Bureau of Economic Geology, University of Texas at Austin as a visiting scholar and postdoctoral fellow.
Xinming received the award for Best Paper in Geophysics in 2016 (3D seismic image processing for faults). He also received the Shanghai excellent master thesis award in 2013 (Generating 3D seismic Wheeler volumes: methods and applications).
