[RESEARCH EXPERIENCE]

Institute of Earth Sciences, Academia Sinica, Postdoctoral Fellow                                                         Taipei, Taiwan Sep 2018  

The University of Texas at Austin, Research Assistant                                                                           Austin, TX, Aug 2012 – May 2018

·         Investigated the behaviors of methane hydrate formation and gas flow within the hydrate stability zone using long duration, high-pressure, low-temperature experiments and computed-tomography scanning.

·         Designed a new experimental method and iteratively improved data quality, reduced errors, and increased success rate.

·         Developed innovative post-processing procedures and mathematical models to analyze experimental results.

·         Performed 30+ experiments that provided novel and relevant contributions to my field of research.

·         Determined that factors controlling hydrate formation during gas flow are different than previously assumed.

·         Communicated the essential results of my research at professional conferences and through peer-reviewed publications.

·         Oversaw training of graduate and undergraduate students in experimental protocols and post-processing procedures.

·         Collaborated with a multi-institutional research team of faculty, staff, and both graduate and undergraduate students.

GEOTEK Ltd., Research Scientist                                                                                          South China Sea, China, Jun 2016 – Aug 2016

·         Member of high-pressure sediment core analysis team on Guangzhou Marine Geological Survey hydrates research cruise.

·         Coordinated with multiple teams to assure proper sediment core post-processing, sampling, curation and storage.

·         Maintained detailed database through improved data-entry protocols, continuous error-checking, and inter-team communication.

·         Provided client with details on hydrate saturation estimates, host sediment descriptions, and core recovery and storage information as well as high quality sediment samples for additional post-cruise shore-based testing.

GeoPRISMS Research Program, Research Scientist                                                                         Cape Hatteras, Sept 2014 – Oct 2014

·         Participated in Eastern North American Margin Community Seismic Experiment research cruise.

·         Cooperated with chief scientists and deck crew to complete scientific objectives in a safe and timely fashion.

·         Prepared clear, concise reports that communicated initial scientific results and experimental methodology to the public.

U.S. Geological Survey, Consultant                                                                                                   St. Petersburg, FL, Jun 2012 – Aug 2012

·         Created innovative algorithms to perform image post-processing, stitching, and georeferencing and evaluated program efficiency.

·         Prepared professional reports concisely describing work performed, results, and recommendations for program improvements.

Incorporated Research Institutions for Seismology, Research Intern                                             Memphis, TN, Jun 2011 – Aug 2011

·         Investigated the shallow and deep-earth structure beneath the New Madrid Seismic Zone.

·         Assisted in collection and analysis of a geophysical dataset taken along the Mississippi River.

·         Performed independent research on erosional and depositional effects of the April 2011 Mississippi River flood on the shallow geomorphology and presented results at an international research conference.

·         Determined that the flood eroded 6 meters of sediment and that post-flood bedforms indicated high depositional velocities.
