GeoModeling for Earth Sustainability Laboratory (GES Lab),
Department of Geoscience, College of Arts and Sciences, Texas Tech University
My team uses geodetic data and numerical models to investigate both the natural and artificial sources of the Earth's surface deformation, including earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, oil/gas wastewater injection, geothermal energy production, etc. These investigations help us to better understand the underlying geomechanical and hydrogeological processes within the shallow crust and allow us to provide key information about human-induced and natural hazards to communities at risk.
We are actively recruiting a Postdoc Research Associate and two Phd students starting in 2023 Fall. Recruitment Flyer

Induced seismicity, oil/gas wastewater injection and poroelastic response simulation
Our work on a M5 earthquake event in west Texas and its relation with the
poroelastic response caused by the nearby deep injection wells has been published in Geophysical Research Letter. We show that the 2020 Mentone, West Texas M5 earthquake likely triggered by deep brine disposal.
