Short CV

I try to understand the temperature, flow, and fluid distribution in subduction zones by comparing the results obtained from numerical modeling of mantle convection and observations. Target observations include seismic velocity anomaly, seismic anisotropy, slab geometry, surface heat flow, intraslab earthquakes, interplate earthquakes, volcano distribution, and slow earthquakes.
