Assistant Professor Department of Earth and Space Sciences
Dr. Han is an assistant professor at SUSTech and a guest researcher in the Japan Institute of Statistic at Chiba University. He graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Geophysics from Peking University in 2006. Then in 2009, he received a Master’s degree from the China Earthquake Bureau of Geophysical Research Institute. In March of 2013, he received his Doctorate of Science from Chiba University. From April that same year to July 2017, he worked as a post-doctoral fellow at Chiba University and the Institute of Statistical Mathematics. He joined Southern University of Science and Technology in August of 2017 and research interests lie in Earth electromagnetics, statistical seismology, and earthquake prediction and risk assessment. To date, he has published more than 20 articles in academic journals such as Surveys in Geophysics, Journal of Geophysical Research, GJI, and Journal of Asian Earth Sciences, and has been cited over 200 times.

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.
