Biography

My native name is Phạm Thành Sơn.

I have background in Applied Mathematics and computational skills (as a back-end software developer). In ICTP Trieste, I did an intensive coursework program in Geophysics and decided to pursue a career in Global Seismology.

Now, I am a student working under the supervison of As/Prof Hrvoje Tkalčić. My PhD subject involves autocorrelation and crosscorrelation techniques to analyze seismic waveforms for crustal imaging and studying Earth's deep interior.

Research

Research interests

  • P wave coda autocorrelation method for (shallow) crustal imaging 
  • Global correlation wavefield for deep Earth studies
  • Full waveform simulation and computational seismology
