Hongjian Fang is a postdoc working with Robert van der Hilst. His interests lie in the area of regional and global scale seismic tomography. In particular his work is focused on developing more advanced methods, and incorporating more data types to better resolve Earth structure, in order to achieve a clearer understanding of geological processes taking place in Earth’s deep interior. Other interests include rupture dynamics of large earthquakes and tectonic tremor.
Fang joins EAPS from the Department of Geophysics and Planetary Sciences USTC ( the University of Science and Technology of China,) in Hefei, where he studied for his PhD. He holds a Bachelor in Applied Geophysics (2012) from Jilin University, China.
