Dr Daisy (Jingqiu) Huang
Daisy (Jingqiu) Huang is a Daphne Jackson Fellow at the University of Edinburgh in the School of Geosciences.
Daisy completed a BSc in geophysics at Jilin University, after which she won a scholarship for an MSc at the University of Houston. This led to work as a borehole seismic geophysicist in Houston, but a funding cut forced her group to break up and she decided to study for a PhD at the University of Houston, in imaging and the investigation of surface deformation. Daisy felt it was important that her research was able to help people which is why she expanded her studies to both the US and West Pakistan where she could have more of an impact.
Now returning to research after a break of three years, Daisy’s Fellowship is sponsored by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC).
Due to finish in 2023 her research project is titled: Mapping recent movement rates along active faults in the Kathmandu Valley before and after the 2015 Gorkha earthquake
