Research Interests

Numerical modelling geodynamic process of Earth tectonics:

1. Develop mechanical models of interseismic stress accumulation and crustal deformation to understand the cause for earthquake generation

2. Faults interaction and earthquake triggering

3. Mantle-lithosphere interaction process and its influence on the generation of intraplate earthquake

4. Lithospheric deformation including mountain building,  rifting, initiation of subduction/faulting


通过数值模拟的方法分析地球动力学若干问题(侧重于岩石圈动力学、地震成因机理、地震力学与地震活动性分析):

1. 建立断裂带区域的力学模型,分析构造应力场与地壳形变特征以探讨地震孕震成因机理

2. 断层之间的相互作用过程、地震触发

3. 地幔-岩石圈相互作用过程,及其在地震孕震成因中的作用

4. 岩石圈变形过程,包括:造山带、张裂大陆及洋盆演化,探讨区域岩石圈流变结构在构造动力学中的控制作用
