Postdoctoral Fellow
Geodynamics in planets


My research focuses on geodynamics both in the Mars and the Earth. The main goal is to improve our understanding of geological and geophysical phenomena, such as volcanism, topographic/geoid anomaly, mantle convection, plumes, faulting, and earthquakes, in a thermal-mechanical view. The researches are mainly done by numerical calculation of finite element models. The model parameters and results are constrained and/or compared with observations from gravity field, topography, meteorites, seismicity, geodesy, and other geological/geophysical sources.
