About me

I obtained a PhD in Geology (focus on Geophysics) in May 2019 from University of South Florida, Tampa. I have an MSc degree from University of Tehran and a BSc degree in Physics. I am interested in geophysics, geosciences, subsurface monitoring, modeling and also machine learning. I am and have been involved in different scale exploration problems. Projects that I have been involved in cover wide range of subsurface exploration/monitoring related areas from engineering to geology, volcanology and planetary sciences. Utility mapping and monitoring, void and tunnel exploration, wetland monitoring, mineral exploration and heydrological studies are among the projects that I have worked on. I am interested in developing methodologies (theory) and applications of scientific tools. For the list of projects, publications and patents please scroll down.
