Chen Gu has been named as the second M. Nafi Toksöz Fellow in Geophysics. 

M. Nafi Toksöz Fellow in Geophysics Chen Gu has been named as the second M. Nafi Toksöz Fellow in Geophysics, which is particularly fitting as her primary academic advisor is Professor Nafi Toksöz himself. Interested in the Earth and planets since she was a child, Gu, orig-inally from Sezhou, China, came to the Earth Resources lab in EAPS in 2010 as it offered, “one of the greatest geophysics programs in the world.”

“It’s a special honor to be named as the Toksöz fellow,” says Gu, “Professor Toksöz cares for his students as if they were his own kids and works very hard to support our ideas, help us solve problems and to prepare us professionally.”

Gu’s research involves studies of hydrofracturing-related acoustic events and induced seismicity in oil/gas fields. In her spare time, she is active in leading both chinese and geophysics student activities and enjoys tennis and chinese arts such as calligraphy and gu-qin music.
