    Ph.D. Student in Geophysics

    BioI am a mid-career PhD student in geophysics. My research interest is on continental mantle earthquakes, specifically how do we identify them and why do they happen.

    Zihan Wei

    Ph.D. Student in Geophysics
    Ph.D. Minor, Computer Science

    BioI'm a PhD candidate in Geophysics. My research is on environmental fluid dynamics, volcanology, groundwater hydrology and natural hazards. Currently I'm working on bridging fluid dynamics of magma in volcanoes with various data to understand the processes in volcanic systems, and combining remote sensing data and in-situ measurements to minitor groudwater storage. I'm also interested in agent-based modeling, numerical modeling related to animation, and applying machine learning to solve real-world environmental problems.

    Hong Yang

    Ph.D. Student in Geological Sciences
    Masters Student in Geophysics

    BioHong Yang is currently a PhD student in Geological Science working with Wendy L. Mao. He joined Mao’s lab at Stanford University in 2018, after finishing his Master’s Degree at HPSTAR, Shanghai, where he was supervised by Jung-Fu Lin. His Master’s thesis focused on the experimental determination of iron isotopic fractionation behavior of lower mantle phases using the Synchrotron X-ray technique NRIXS. Before that, he was an undergraduate majoring in Geochemistry at the University of Science and Technology of China. There he performed the quality assessment of bottled drinking water and water from Lake Chao under Fang Huang’s supervision.

    Hong’s research interests include the chemical (especially isotopic) evolution of the Earth and other planetary bodies; structure and sound velocities of iron-alloys at high pressure; pressure-induced electronic, magnetic, elastic and structural transitions in materials; as well as high pressure photon science. His recent research was published on Earth Planet. Sci. Lett. 506, 113-122 (2019), entitled “Iron isotopic fractionation in mineral phases from Earth’s lower mantle: Did terrestrial magma ocean crystallization fractionate iron isotopes?”.
