About Me:

Hi there! I am Cindy Lim, a Geophysics PhD student from the University of Bristol, UK.

I am interested in induced seismicity, microseismicity and applying machine learning methods to observational seismology. I want to use ML-enhanced catalogues to help inform us more about the mechanisms that induce seismicity!

My PhD is funded by the British Geological Survey (BGS) and COMET. I am also an Alan Turing Enrichment Scheme student. My supervisors are Dr. Max Werner from the University of Bristol and Dr. Margarita Segou from the BGS.

After working hours, I enjoy playing the bass and electric guitar, basketball, video games and experiencing amazing views from fieldtrips!

For more random ramblings and/or research progress, follow me on Twitter, Mastodon or BlueSky ( since that seems like less of a dumpster fire nowadays.
