He has led the National Natural Science Fund of China for Distinguished Young Scholars project, the key projects of NSFC, National Major Project of China, 863 Program and projects from industries. He made many achievements in the fields of seismic modelling and seismic imaging. His modelling schemes have successfully resolved challenging problems including surface topography, fluid-solid interface, fractured media and so on. His pioneer research on seismic imaging with de-absorption has earned a very high reputation. He has published more than 100 journal papers (of which 35 papers were issued on Geophysics, Geophysical Journal International, and Geophysical Prospecting). He also has 18 patents for inventions.

Join us

The Department of Earth and Space Sciences (ESS) at Southern University of Science and Technology was established in December 2016. Prof. Xiaofei Chen, a renowned seismologist and an academician of Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), is appointed as an initiatory departmental head. 

The studies in ESS concern the physics of the Earth, geo-space and planets in outer space. Through building up a world-leading program of research and education in Earth and Space Sciences, we strive to conduct the research that would advance our understanding on the complex natural system of Earth and Space, in order to provide science-based solutions to many of the societal challenges of our time: natural hazards, natural energy resources, space exploration, etc. In the meantime, our department offers rigorous hands-on training to students and prepares them to be future leaders in academia, government and industry. 

ESS encompasses a wide range of scientific disciplines: Geophysics, Space Physics, Satellite Geodesy and Planetary Science. By the end of October 2019, ESS has thirty-one faculty members, including six professors, four associate professors, eleven assistant professors, and ten research assistant professors, including one Academician of Chinese Academy of Sciences, three Distinguished Young Scholars of National Nature Science Fund, one Excellent Young Scientists of National Science Fund. elcome more talents to join us and work together to build a world-class research and education center for Earth and Space Sciences.
