Professor Wen is a theoretical and observational seismologist and
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
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.
