Low-frequency or long period earthquakes occur at depths around the Moho not only near plate interface but also near active volcanoes, Quaternary volcanoes, or somewhere else. I'm interested in their physical process and working on detection, seismicity, focal mechanism, and modeling. Analyzing their tiny signal is challenging but important in seismology, volcanology, and tectonics. I'm also motivated to work on a broad range of geophysics including real-time monitoring and social contributions.
