Xinming received an engineering degree (2009) in Geophysics from Central South University, an M.Sc. (2012) in Geophysics from Tongji University, and a Ph.D. (2016) in Geophysics from the Colorado School of Mines where he was a member working with Dr. Dave Hale at the Center for Wave Phenomena. He interned twice at Transform Software and Services/DrillingInfo during the summer and winter of 2014.
Xinming was selected to be the SEG Honorary Lecturer for South & east Asia, 2020. He received the SEG's awards for:
- Best Paper in Geophysics with Dave Hale in 2016 (3D seismic image processing for faults),
- Best Student Poster Paper with Sean Bader and Sergey Fomel in 2017 (Missing log interpolation and seismic well ties),
- Honorable Mention for Best Paper presented at the 2018 SEG Annual Convention with Sergey Fomel in 2018 (Least-squares horizons).
He also received the Shanghai excellent master thesis award in 2013 (Generating 3D seismic Wheeler volumes: methods and applications).
Xinming writes a lot of Java packages  for his research on seismic structural and stratigraphic interpretation, deep learning (e.g., FaultSeg), subsurface modeling, joint seismic and well-log interpretation, and geophysical inversion with geologic constraints.
Xinming Wu shares the 2017 Best Poster Paper Presented by a Student at the Annual Meeting with Sean Bader and Dr. Sergey Fomel.
