Xiaoran Chen

Postdoctoral researcher

I initially joined Rutgers Seismology Group in September 2015 as a PhD student and then graduated in 2020. During my PhD, my research focused on understanding seismic anisotropy from the perspective of theoretical development and exploring the upper mantle anisotropic structures beneath the Superior craton and the Yilgarn craton to set constraints to the craton
