Ph.D., California Insitute of Technology, 1998
Professor Wen is a theoretical and observational seismologist and geodynamicist.
His research is directed toward understanding the structure, dynamics, composition
and evolution of the Earth and other planets. He uses seismic waves to probe the internal
structure of the Earth and its change with time, combines seismic and mineral physics
data to constrain the composition of the mantle, and develops geodynamical models
of how Earth's internal processes govern the Earth's continental drift, surface uplift,
surface large igneous province, geochemistry, intra-plate deformation and volcanism.
He also has a strong interest in developing new techniques for simulating viscous
flow and seismic wave propagation.
