Our group use geodetic observations and numerical simulations to study (1) tectonics and earthquakes on land and in the ocean; (2) Nuclear test.

We are looking for a postdoc to use InSAR and numerical models to characterize nuclear tests. Please send your CV and cover letter to Matt Wei.
We are looking for motivated students for a variety of projects related to earthquake physics, geodesy, and numerical simulation. Familiarity with Terminal and Fortran/Matlab/Python language is preferred. Please contact me if you are interested.
