Introduction: A slightly longer introduction about my research interests: My research interests include analysis of seismic waves to investigate the physics of earthquake faulting, evaluation of controlling factors for ground shaking, and structure of the Earth’s deep interior. I have studied shallow and deep earthquake rupture processes using various techniques, such as back-projection imaging, finite-fault slip inversion, and source spectrum analysis. To better understand seismic hazards, I study strong ground shaking records for individual earthquakes and quantify site response using teleseismic events. For deep Earth structure, my primary interest is on imaging structures associated with dynamic processes of subducting lithosphere.
