Joint Appointment Research Fellow

Research Interests

My research interests involve three areas. I am interested in mantle dynamics in general, and subduction zone dynamics in particular. One of our recent studies shows the dominance of the vertical entrainment in the strain field surrounding the Hindu-Kush continental subduction and the requirement of a strong radial anisotropy in the mantle. My second theme is the orogenic and subduction processes in the broad collision-subduction zone of Taiwan.
