Jiashun HU
Associate Professor

Jiashun Hu received his bachelor’s degree from Peking University in 2013 and his Ph.D degree from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2018. He was a postdoc in the Seismological Laboratory at California Institute of Technology from 2018 to 2020. Upon finishing his postdoc research, he joined SUSTech in 2020. As a first author or corresponding author, Jiashun has published multiple papers on academic journals such as Nature Geoscience, Nature Communications, Earth and Planetary Science Letters, Geochemistry Geophysics Geosystems, and so on. His research interests cover a wide range of topics, including the driving mechanisms of plate motion, orogenic process at subduction zones, the evolution of cratons, and the distribution of earthquakes and volcanisms. For most of his research, he uses supercomputers and large-scale computing to simulate complex dynamics of the solid Earth with constraints from geophysical and geological observations.
