I am a postdoctoral fellow in the Geophysics Department. As a seismologist by training, I received my PhD (geophysics) from University of California, Berkeley in 2015 and then joined LBNL in the same year.  My PhD research was part of the Next Generation Ecosystem Experiments (NGEE-Arctic), during which I worked on seismic imaging and characterization of permafrost. For my current research at LBNL, permafrost continues to be a key topic, while seismic monitoring of CO2 sequestration has also become my main area of interests.

My research experiences so far encompass surface-wave methods, ambient-noise interferometry, laboratory measurements and rock-physics modeling of ice-bearing sediments, full wavefield/waveform inversion, and seismic imaging & monitoring with fiber-optic distributed acoustic sensing (DAS).
