I conduct research on global-scale and regional-scale earth structure and basin-scale hydrocarbon (oil and gas, gas hydrate) exploration using seismic imaging with both passive and active source seismic data.
My current research mainly focuses on understanding the lithospheric structure and dynamics of the Tibetan plateau and south African craton with seismic velocity and anisotropy obtained from surface wave tomography (Rayleigh wave and Love wave; earthquake and ambient noise), receiver function, and shear wave splitting.
I’m also interested in subsurface gas hydrate detection using a variety of geophysical methods in northern South China Sea. For example, I characterized hydrate-related geological features with 3-D seismic data and explored how hydrate associates with seafloor gas seepage and their implications for seafloor geohazard. I have used long-offset (~10 km) basin-scale (up to ~40 km depth) reflection seismic data to understand deep crustal structure and reveal how the deep structure relates to potential petroleum system in basins. The work/study areas cover a variety of continental margins, such as Gulf of Mexico, Peru, NE Atlantic, Eastern Africa, Northeastern Canada, and North Alaska.
(1) Seismic constraints on lithosphere structure and evolution;
(2) Crust and upper mantle structure of the earth;
(3) Oil and gas exploration and gas hydrate detection using seismic imaging
