Project Borehole seismic imaging and monitoring, Stanford University and Universidade Federal da Bahia (1/1/1996 - Present)

Principal Investigator:

This collaborative research activity began in 1996 and has run for more than 20 years. Over this time, I have taught short courses at the Federal University of Bahia and meetings of the local geophysical society on borehole seismic imaging and tomography. In addition, I have co-advised several MS level graduate students. Recently, we completed a research project on CO2 monitoring with sponsorship of Petrobras, the national petroleum company.

Project Historical and Archaeological Research on Qiaoxiang (Home Villages) of 19th Century Transpacific Migrants in the Kaiping Diaolou World Heritage Site, Guangdong, China, Stanford University

Principal Investigator:

This collaborative project is a pioneering interdisciplinary study of 19th century qiaoxiang (home village) society and culture in the Pearl River Delta region, Guangdong, China. Emigration from southeastern China is one of the largest and most important population movements during the modern era.
