About:

Zhu is an assistant professor in geophysics. He began his career at Penn State in 2016. Prior to Penn State, Zhu was a Dean’s Postdoctoral Fellow in the Jackson School of Geosciences at the University of Austin. Zhu obtained a B.S. in geophysics from the China University of Geosciences, his M.S. in geophysics from the Chinese Academy of Sciences, and his Ph.D. in geophysics from Stanford University. His research interests center on the physics of seismic wave propagation in Earth media, geophysical (seismic and ground-penetrating radar) imaging methods, and fiber-optic geophysics sensing. His research integrates geophysical techniques, mathematical simulation, and field measurements looking at a wide range of subsurface imaging challenges from fractures to faults, carbon dioxide sequestration, critical zone exploration, and planet exploration. Zhu’s honors and awards include the Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellowship from the University of Texas, Austin, Best Paper Award and J. Clarence Karcher Award from the Society of Exploration Geophysicists.
