To characterize and understand the earthquake processes, my research focuses on the development of dynamic rupture modeling using physics-based simulation. In particular, I’m interested in induced seismicity due to energy production and fluid injection in the subsurface reservoir, where multiphase flow and multi-physics have a complex impact on earthquake dynamics. The simulation result is then validated by observation data.

Research Interests

dynamic rupture modeling, induced seismicity, computational fracture mechanics, seismic cycle
