Lijing is a fourth-year Ph.D. student in Geological Sciences. Her interests include Bayesian inversion, geometric and topological data analysis, geostatistics and deep learning (focusing on computer vision). Her research goal is to develop statistical methods to quantify uncertainty and make decisions in energy resources and environments. She is currently working on 3D subsurface structural modeling given geophysical data for groundwater and oil/gas reservoirs.
