"This impact of our work largely reflects the fertile environment for creativity that exists at UT Dallas and my so many dedicated and inspired students and colleagues of all ages who have made pivotand my so many dedicated and inspired students and colleagues of all ages who have made pivotal discoveries in collaborative research."
"The lifeblood of a great research university is the innovative work done by faculty members, researchers and graduate students from many disciplines in laboratories across the campus. I've been able to continue my own research, which is immensely rewarding, as well as to hopefully help enhance the research environment at UT Dallas."
"Understanding the interaction of the Earth, the space around it, and the sun addresses the intellectual question of how planets interact with their neighboring star. It also allows us to learn how our environment affects current space technologies."
"UT Dallas is an exciting place to be. I am particularly grateful for the strong support I've received from the University and the community, which has allowed me to create a significant science and engineering education outreach program at UT Dallas."
"The main goal of my research is production of detailed 3D imaging of earth structures and physical properties by designing computer algorithms to image seismic and electromagnetic waves that propagate through them. The most satisfying aspect of my research is seeing all of the graduate students that I have supervised doing well in their careers and their lives as a result of their UT Dallas education."
