CV
Curriculum Vitae

 

Pock is a junior in Geophysics and he is originally from Bangkok, Thailand. Last summer, he worked with Dr. Paul Sava on the “Foundations of Radar and Seismic Imaging of Asteroids and Comets,” and with the Southwest Research Institute in Boulder, Colorado. His main research interest is seismic imaging, on which he is currently working and studying at CWP.

He participated in the CSM Department of Geophysics' 2012 Field Camp during the summer of 2012, through which he conducted geophysical field investigations at Pagosa Springs, Colorado. At Mines, he is currently taking course work that include: Intro to seismology, wave seismic imaging, and advanced seismic processing and he uses Madacascar, Java, Seismic Unix (SU), etc. regularly. Apart from his academics, Pock is a residential assistant at Maple Hall, a dormitory at Mines. He loves outdoor recreation, and he plays classical guitar.

Foundations of radar and seismic imaging of asteroids and comets

Pock is working with Prof. Paul Sava on the "Foundations of Radar and Seismic Imaging of Asteroids and Comets," and with the Southwest Research Institute in Boulder, Colorado. The project focuses on the imaging and computational methods and uses seismic processing methods applied to electromagnetic wave propagation of the interior of asteroid. Also, the data are migrated, which compute in the circular grid of source and receiver. The project's main accomplishments during summer 2012 are the different aperture and number of source affected the imaging condition of the asteroid.

For future work, the project is considering the implementation of physical properties and electromagnetic processes to get the realistic model for the asteroid investigation.
