Research interests
I am mainly interested in the study of the Earth's deep interior. Most information is obtained from seismic tomography, but not much is known about the reliability of the models. To address this problem, my collaborators and I used a full model space search technique to solve the long wavelength tomographic problem. Besides robust error and correlation estimates, we discovered solutions which previously escaped attention. I am particularly interested in anisotropy and density and their interpretation in terms of temperature and compositional changes. An exciting new challenge is to use synthetic seismograms in 3D Earth models to image the deep interior. I have strong interests in all aspects of inverse theory and recently started to work on shallow problems relevant to the exploration industry.
