Chengping Chai

Geophysicist, R&D Associate Staff

I am a Geophysicist at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. I earned my Ph.D. in Geosciences with a Minor in Computational Science from Penn State University. Prior to my doctoral studies, I received both my B.S. and M.S. degrees in Geophysics from the University of Science and Technology of China. My research is driven by a passion for our understanding of the Earth's subsurface through the integration of geophysical techniques and cutting-edge computational methods. By leveraging machine learning and high-performance computing, I seek to unlock new insights into the behavior of seismic waves and the processes that shape our planet. Additionally, I have experience in seismic and acoustic monitoring for industrial and environmental applications.
