Shuoshuo is interested in the structure, tectonic processes, and related hazards at subduction zones, and the formation and evolution of oceanic lithosphere. She uses active source seismic data to image the detailed structures of the sediment, oceanic crust and uppermost mantle. She also integrates seismic data with ocean drilling data to constrain physical properties, and infer in-situ stress states of the subsurface. Her recent studies have focused on the Cascadia subduction zone offshore the west coast of the US and Canada and the Hikurangi subduction zone offshore New Zealand.
