- December 2018 -

    Kang will present his recent study on the co- and post-seismic deformation due to the 2017 M7.3 Iran-Iraq earthquake at AGU 2018 fall meeting in Washington D.C.

    Title: Probing fault frictional properties during afterslip up- and down-dip of the 2017 Mw 7.3 Iran-Iraq earthquake

    Time and Location: Wednesday, 12 December 2018, Poster Hall (T33F-0477)

About Kang

I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at Seismological Laboratory in UC Berkeley, working with Prof. Roland B├╝rgmann. I am broadly interested in the processes that deform the solid earth, such as earthquakes, volcanoes, earth tides, hydrological loading, etc. One of my current research focuses is on earthquake cycle deformation. I use space geodetic measurements, including GPS and InSAR (Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar), in combination with numerical models, to study the mechanical properties of fault zone and the Earth's lithosphere. See the RESEARCH page for more details.
