Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellow
Chuanming Liu is the Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellow at the Jackson School of Geosciences and postdoctoral researcher at the University of Texas Institute for Geophysics. Chuanming’s primary research interests lie in seismology, with a focus on exploring the seismic structure of Earth’s crust and uppermost mantle.
During his Ph.D., he constructed a new surface wave database across Alaska based on ambient noise and earthquake data. He further constructed the tilted transversely isotropic model of the continental Alaskan crust and depth-dependent azimuthal anisotropy beneath the Alaska-Aleutian subduction zone.
His current projects aim to explore the relationship between seismic anisotropy and its tectonic implications in regions including the Juan de Fuca Plate, the Cascadia subduction zone, and Anatolia.
