Education and Appointments:

Jing WU, Associate Professor in IGG, CAS
My major interests are seismicity detection and seismic anisotropy, as seismicity detection is efficient to reveal the fault zone structure while seismic anisotropy may help us to know the geodynamic process of the deep Earth. In recent years, I focus on northern and eastern Tibet, where many large-scale faults are located and a lot of great earthquakes occurred, and this arouses me great interests in both the fault zone structure and the geodynamic process in this area.
