FU Lei
Research Assistant Professor

Dr. Lei Fu born in 1985, received the BS (2009) in Geophysics from China University of Geoscience (Wuhan), and the PhD(2014) in School of Geo-exploration and Information Technology, Jilin University. Then he joined the Center for Subsurface Imaging and Fluid Modeling (CSIM) group in KAUST as a postdoc fellow from Dec. 2014 to Dec. 2017. His research interests include full waveform inversion (FWI) for seismic data, surface wave and Guided wave inversion, GPR etc.
