Associate Professor, Department of Earth Science

Dr. Bing Zhou received his PhD in Geophysics in 1998. In the past two decades, he worked for Chengdu University of Technology in China, Lund University in Sweden, Adelaide University in Australia and International Center of Theoretical Physics in Italy. He has also been invited as a visiting scholar to lecture and seminar at universities in Austria, Switzerland, China, Saudi Arabia and USA. He has so far supervised 22 postgraduates and been engaged fourteen research projects from different research resources. He has accumulated into over 90 publications in domestic and international journals, and 25 presentations at international workshops and conferences. He is the recipients of 2018 Competitive Research Award and 2017 Abu Dhabi Education & Knowledge Award for Research Excellence. Also, the co-recipients of 2014 Best Paper Awards of IOP Science, 2013 Europe Ludger Mintrop Award and 2011 Best Reviewer for Geophysical Journal International. As an expert in seismic tomography, seismic wave and geoelectric modelling and inversion, he is an esteemed reviewer for many international geophysical journals. He is an Associate Professor at Dep. Of Earth Science, Khalifa University of Science and Technology in UAE, an Adjunct Associate Professor at the Université du Québec en Abitibi-Témiscamingue in Canada, Associate editors for Near Surface Geophysics and Journal of Geophysics and Engineering. He is also Research Consultants of King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology in Saudi Arab and ZZ-resistivity Imaging Company in Australia.
