Research Interests

​Crustal deformation and topographic evolution induced by volcanic activities, earthquakes or fault displacement. Studying by various ways combined satellite imagery, analogue experiment and numerical modeling. Current study is about caldera collapses and focused subsidence deformation induced by the reservoir depletion and the ring-faulting in volcanic areas such as Wolf and Fernandina caldera in Galápagos archipelago​.
