Research Interests

My major is geodynamics –study causes that responsible for various geological processes. My approach is quit different from a traditional geologist. I apply continuum physical principles to quantitatively analyze the cause and effect that may exist behind phenomenon.

My current research activities fall into three general categories: (1) active tectonics that can be detected by geodetics including GPS measurement, seismography, field geological investigation; (2) mountain building process that involves plate movement in history; (3) mechanism for earthquake development.
