Tolulope Olugboji
Assistant Professor (Group Lead)

Dr. Olugboji leads the URSeismology lab and teaches grad. & undergrad. courses at the UofR.  In addition to teaching and research, he promotes earth science education through public outreach lectures and invited talks, which he gives across the country and around the world.

Ziqi (Evan) Zhang
PhD Candicate ('19)

Evan holds BS and MS in geophysics from USTC and China Earthquake Administration (IEF/CEA). He is developing new imaging techniques to understand the structure of the oceanic lithosphere. Submarine noise modeling, prediction, and elimination are primary research goals.

Steve Carr
PhD Student ('21)

Steve Carr holds a master's degree from Bowling Green Univ. He studied crustal stress changes along border faults caused by hydrological loading. He has a keen interest in earth structure & geophysics.

Jean-Joel Legre
PhD Student ('21)

Joel received his BSc in Geophysics from the University of Oklahoma, with research experience in seismic anisotropy and surface wave inversion. Joel is interested in geophysical modeling & subsurface imaging.

Siyu Xue
Research Assistant

Siyu is a senior at the UofR. She is a double major in anthropology & data science, with a minor in mathematics. She is working on Bayesian analysis of ambient noise data. Siyu says she wants to make the world a better place. 

Baowei Liu
Computational Scientist
Baowei is a senior scientific programmer at Rochester (since 2012). He manages our computational infrastructure and supports the computing needs of the group's members. Baowei has experience in Physics and Simulations, High-Performance Computing, Data Analysis, and Visualization.
Ph.D. Student
Prospective Graduate
We are actively recruiting highly motivated Ph.D. students to join our team. Interested students need not have any prior programming experience. A keen interest in the group‘s research and a solid quantitative (mathematical and physical sciences) or computing background is highly valued. For more information on the Ph.D. program consult the University of Rochester’s graduate student handbook and resources for applying (see links below). Also, feel free to schedule a one-one-conversation with me Google+ link below
IRIS has paid internships (9-12 weeks) that can fund undergraduate research with the UofR seismology group (deadline for this year is Feb 1, 2018, see link below for application details). The ideal student should be looking to work on a project that provides exposure to methods and tools used by seismologists and computational geoscientists within the context of a larger scientific investigation. Students should apply and request to be paired with the UofR group.Prospective students can also set up a meeting with me with the Google+ link below):
