Research interests

Throughout my Ph.D. and postdoctoral research, I primarily focus on ground displacements from earthquake and volcanic activity, using InSAR. My work has encompassed the development of InSAR processing algorithms for ScanSAR mode data, advancements in InSAR tropospheric correction methods, investigations into interseismic strain accumulation along the Altyn Tagh Fault in Tibet, and the application of geodetic constraints on the 2018 Mw 7.5 Palu earthquake in Indonesia. Currently, my research aims to develop a comprehensive observational database of deformation at global volcanoes for machine learning applications. I also have strong research interests in combining the knowledge of geodesy, geophysics, and artificial intelligence to study seismic hazards.
