Ming Zhang’s work focuses on the development of algorithms and software for the forward-modeling and inversion of geophysical electromagnetic data, including the controlled source electromagnetic (CSEM) data, controlled-source audio-frequency magnetotelluric (CSAMT) data, semi-airborne electromagnetic (SAEM) data, transient electromagnetic (TEM) data, etc. As a Research Affiliate Fellow at OCEEMlab, Ming will implement the numerical modeling and inversion for electromagnetic and other geophysical data (i.e., seismic) to better resolve and interpret the electrical resistivity of various Earth structures..
Ming’s research goals include:
- develop novel forward modeling methods for geophysical electromagnetic data;
- applying electromagnetic methods for solving complex geophysical problems, including groundwater exploration, geological structure investigation, and engineering and environmental geology;
- interpretation of underground electrical resistivity structures using joint inversion methods;
- programming to implement forward modeling and inversion methods.
