Research in‌terests

My principal research interests include the use of Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR) and Global Positioning System (GPS) for monitoring changes in the Earth’s surface for geophysical and engineering applications such as earthquakes, volcanoes, landslides and city subsidence. I specialize in development of advanced space geodesy techniques for precise deformation mapping.

  • InSAR atmospheric correction models
  • Advanced InSAR time series techniques
  • High-rate GPS data processsing
  • Remote Sensing
  • Satellite Gravity: GRACE for coseismic gravity changes
  • Earthquake: fault geometry determination with geodetic measurements
  • Earthquake: slip distribution constrained by geodetic measurements
  • Continental deformation
  • Ground subsidence in River Deltas 
  • Structural deformation of dams, buildings, railways, and motorways
  • Atmospheric water vapour spatio-temporal variations
  • Environmental changes (e.g. Lake water level change, coastal erosion, flood mapping and aerosol monitoring)
