Welcome to Shujuan's Webpage!

Shujuan Mao

I am currently a Thompson Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Geophysics at Stanford Doerr School of Sustainability.

I aim to better understand the physical mechanisms of various time-varying processes in the Earth's shallow subsurface, associated with groundwater fluctuations, geothermal energy production, Oil & Gas operations, and CO geological sequestration. My current research focuses on developing and utilizing seismic interferometry techniques to monitor the 4D (space-time) evolution of subsurface fluids. I'm also interested in integrating seismological observations with other types of geophysical data, to provide a comprehensive 4D characterization of near-surface systems.

Prior to starting at Stanford, I received a B.S. degree from Peking University (2015) and a Ph.D. from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (2021), both in geophysics. During my PhD, I stayed at ISTerre (Grenoble, France) for about two years working with the ambient seismic noise group.
