Research Assistant Professor Department of Ocean Science and Engineering
Yong Yu, a research assistant professor, focuses on detecting the inner structures of the Earth by the method of seismology tomography. He got his bachelor's degree in geophysics in 2010 at Peking University and PH.D. in geophysics at Peking University in 2016. He continued to be a postdoc at Southern University of Science and Technology from 2016 to 2019 and became a research assistant professor in the Department of ocean science and technology from 2019.
Research Field: Finite-Frequency Tomography, Shear-wave splitting, Full waveform inversion.
Imaging the velocity structure of the lithosphere and near-surface structure by methods, such as trave-time tomography, finite-frequency tomography, and full waveform inversion. Using SKS splitting method to study the anisotropy structure in the upper-mantle, aiming at unveiling the dynamic status in the deep earth.
