Degree Program at Mines: Phd in Geophysics





I graduated from Central South University, China, with a Bachelor of Science degree in Geotechnical Engineering. Then I moved to the United States to pursue my master degree in geophysical engineering at the University of Arizona. After successfully completion of the program, I went to work for Schlumberger and Global Geophysical Services as a processing geophysicist for several years. I joined RCP in the Fall of 2017 and am pursuing a PhD degree in Geophysics. I wanted to come to Mines and join the RCP consortium because of its leading research capability in using integrated approach for the unconventional resource play.


My research interests include seismic imaging, inversion and interpretation, petrophysics/rock physics and data integration. My role as part of the Eagle Ford team is working on the multi-component seismic data (Surface and VSP) to improve the seismic imaging for interpretation and inversion as well as the understanding of the anisotropy within the reservoir. With the improvement, I hope to understand the stress information for the reservoir, which is important for the drilling and production.


I usually take fully advantage of the beautiful Colorado mountains all year around. During summer, I would like to go hiking and play soccer. In the winter, I usually go ski with friends.
