I will be beginning as an assistant professor in Fall 2022 at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. I am actively recruiting graduate students and postdocs.
About the project:
Forecasting volcanic eruptions using precursory deformation, seismicity, and gas emissions during episodes of volcanic unrest is one of volcanology’s most significant challenges. Formulations of the host rocks’ response to the migration and evolution of fluids (e.g., magma, hydrothermal fluids, and gas) are critical but not easy. The proposed research will develop numerical models that integrate both experimental and geophysical data to advance our understanding of the subsurface processes during volcanic unrest. Note: the project is not limited to modeling volcanic unrest. If you are interested in the mechanism of crustal deformation, earthquakes, landslides, hydrothermal systems, or other geodynamic problems, please contact me for more information.
SUPERVISOR: Dr. Yan Zhan (https://geoyanzhan.org/ https://geoyanzhan.org/) (research interests: geophysical volcanology, earthquake dynamics, lithospheric deformation, numerical modeling, data assimilation)
