1. What area of earth science do you study and monitor?
I am a seismologist at the Earth Observatory of Singapore at Nanyang Technological University, where I monitor and study earthquake hazards and sub-surface imaging both for the deep and the shallow earth. I apply seismology to important Earth science problems, including earthquake processes, Earth structure and dynamics, and smart city development.
2. What opportunities exist to capture heat from the deep earth to create low carbon energy and reduce the emission of greenhouse gases?
Recently there was ...
