Non-Traditional Seismic Network - MyShake
This is the main project that I am doing during my Ph.D, it is a collaboration with Deutsche Telekom Silicon Valley Innovation Center, what I did:
Conducted Noise Floor tests and shake table tests to prove smartphones can be used to detect earthquakes
Designed the whole structure of MyShake system, including android app, server
Developed the Artificial Neural Network classifier to distinct earthquakes from human activities
Involved in implementing MyShake system
Now working on analyze data collected by MyShake
I am currently working on source study of the M6.4 Taiwan earthquake using Finite Fault Modeling. This project is working with Diego Melgar using his code Mudpy.
I am also doing array analysis using dense seismic array data. This work is mainly collaborate with Lingsen Meng from UCLA.
I worked with Taka'aki Taira using the ambient noise to monitor the seismic velocity change before the 2014 M6.0 Napa earthquake.
Social Network Analysis
I am also really interested in machine learning and how to apply different techniques back to seismology. Social network analysis is one thing I am exploring on seismic arrays.
