Hui graduated from Zhejiang University with a Bachelor's degree in earth science. Following his graduation, he studied at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology in Saudi Arabia, where he received his Master's degree in geophysics. During his time at KAUST, Hui worked on depth migration, using the so-called prestack exploding reflector model to do two-way migration and modeling. His research also included exploring the efficiency gain for large-scale computations and he has experience working with some cutting-edge clusters and supercomputers.
Hui joined CWP in August 2014. His CWP advisor is Prof. Ilya Tsvankin, and his main research interests are seismic inverse problems and computational mathematics. Apart from geophysics, Hui enjoys scientific reading, programming, and sporting with friends and family.
