As a geophysicist, Tung has been developing state-of-art computational models to study earthquakes, volcanos and tsunamis. Through using multiple streams of geophysical (e.g. gravity, seismic data) and geodetic data (e.g. GPS and InSAR), Tung analyzes those natural hazards over a wide range of localities including Cascadia, California, Central Italy, Nepal, Tibet/Himalayas, Southern Mexico and Southwest China. The distinctively improved accurancy of inverted earthquake-slip, imaged magma-chamber location and tsunami forecasts joint efforts to contribute to better hazard warning systems, providing the communities ways to explore the earth's complexity beneath the surface. The corresponding implications and interpretation significantly improve our understandings of important geodynamic processes in both local and regional scales. The results have been presented in multiple national and international conferences, and published in more than 10 articles of high-impacting journals such as Geophysical Research Letters and Journal of Geophysical Research. Open-access book chapters are also available for educational purposes, through which readers could develop their modeling capacities.
