    Teaching: Introduction to geophysics
    Research Interests:

    1.     Joint modeling seismic and mineral physics data to constrain regional upper mantle velocity structures and thermal and compositional models.

    2.     Using gravity and moment of inertia observations and mineral physics modeling to constrain Mars composition and structure.

    3.     Using time-reverse migration of time-lapse walkaway VSP (vertical seismic profiles) data to study scattering structure changes in reservoir due to CO2 injection.
