​I am Chao Song, from China. Currently, I am a PhD student at KAUST under the direction of Prof. Tariq Alkhalifah. Before coming to KAUST, I spent 7 years studying at Jilin Universtiy, China as a bachelor student and a master student. I had done some research on AVO inversion and impedance inversion. Now I am starting my research on Seismic Full Waveform Inversion.

Research Interest

Microseismic event estimation, Full waveform inversion (FWI) for anisotropic and attenuating media and Machine learning
