Teacher Name

Cheng bin, male, born in July 1984, doctor. In 2006, he graduated from the Department of Geology (base class) of Northwest University with a bachelor's degree in geology. In 2014, he received a Ph.D. in structural geology from Northwest University. From September to December 2008, he studied seismic tomographic imaging technology in the seismic and volcanic research and observation center of Department of Geophysics, Tohoku University, Japan. In July 2014, he entered the Department of geology of Northwestern University for teaching and scientific research. From August 2015 to December 2015, visiting scholar of Northeastern University of Japan. At present, it is mainly engaged in the research of natural seismic tomography, deep structure and dynamics of the earth. Up to now, he has mainly studied the three-dimensional seismic wave velocity and P-wave anisotropy structure of the northern part of Helan Sichuan Yunnan North South structural belt and the top of crust upper mantle in Northeast Japan, and compared the deep structure, seismic activity and deep dynamic process of plate subduction belt and intracontinental structural belt. In charge of one youth fund of NSFC.
