Research Group Introduction

Prof. Liu has been mainly engaged in the research of seismic modeling and migration, multi-component seismic exploration, seismic inversion and artificial intelligence.
He has published 160 journal papers including 68 SCI papers, 89 international conference papers.
He is a member of SEG Research Committee, a member of Committee on University and Student Programs (CUSP) of SEG, an associate editor of Geophysics (SEG journal).
He welcomes students who majored in geophysics to join his team and pursue master or PhD degree.
Students with strong mathematical and geophysical foundation and programming ability can play a greater role in the team.
