  • Congcong Yuan ( @ Harvard University): machine learning in seismology, wavefield simulations, theoretical ambient noise seismology, ambient noise monitoring

  • Current Research:
    Ground Motion Prediction: Long period strong ground motion in urban sedimentary basins. Surface waves observation and theory. Non-linear ground motions, near surface shaking damage and healing.

    Earthquake Source Physics: Imaging of spatial and temporal variation of earthquake rupture parameters, in particular of shallow surface-rupturing events. Earthquake energy budget, body- and surface-wave radiated energy, stress drop, radiation efficiency, fracture energy. Focus on surface ruptures. Earthquake co-seismic damage.

    Environmental Seismology: monitoring of subsurface hydrology using ambient seismic field, impacts of extreme events (droughts, wet climatic events).

    High-performance Seismology: Numerical tools to deal with TB-PB size data sets for ambient noise monitoring and imaging. Open-source software in Python and Julia. HPC and cloud computing. Machine learning for seismology.
