研究方向 Research interests

        My research is motived by a desire to understand fault behaviors of a fault during the seismic cycle, to obtain earthquake physics for a seismically active fault, and to expand understanding of fault deformation together with significant applications to other natural faults. Therefore, I mainly focus on the research of fault zone geology, including the (micro-)structures, the mechanical properties and the chemical composition of active faults. By means of the integration of the data of (1) natural observation of active fault zones, (2) microstructural/geochemical investigation of fault rocks, and (3) experiments conducted under expected deformation condition, the field- and laboratory-based complementary data set shall uncover the secrets hidden on seismic faults.

Current research programs include:

  1. Inferring deformation mechanics of the active Chelungpu fault corresponding to 1999 Mw7.6 Chi-Chi earthquake using the fault rock of the Taiwan Chelungpu fault Drilling Project.
  2. Inferring deformation mechanics of the active Longmenshan Fault belt corresponding to 2008 Mw7.9 Wenchuan earthquake using the noncohesivefault rock of the Wenchuan earthquake Fault Scientific Drilling project.
  3. Recognition of a fossil of small earthquakes: fault mirrors in the Taiwan fold-and-thrust belt.
  4. Pseudotachylyte in Tananao metamorphic complex, Taiwan.
