At the University of Chicago, I mainly conduct research on how to utilize 3D printing technology to help us better understand and build velocity models of the Earth. For my PhD, I focus on studying low-frequency seismic noise generated by atmospheric pressure variations at the surface, and estimate near-surface elastic structure for seismic hazard studies.
