Congratulations to Dr. Kelin Wang for being elected a Fellow of the American Geophysical Union (AGU), an international organization dedicated to advancing Earth and space sciences for the benefit of humanity. Becoming a fellow of AGU is an honour provided to only 0.1% of AGU’s 62,000 plus members from over 140 countries.
Kelin and his students are studying the geodynamics of subduction zones, especially processes related to the generation of large earthquakes and tsunamis around the world.
