Welcome to the CES Team website!


The Computational Earthquake Seismology (CES) research group at King Abdullah University of Science & Technology (KAUST) is part of the Earth Science & Engineering Program in the Division of Physical Sciences and Engineering. 

Our group of graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and research scientists works on a range of topics related to earthquake seismology, the physics of earthquakes, and inferring Earth structure, very often using "big" computers.

We also work on developing geothermal energy as an alternative green & sustainable resource in Saudi Arabia.


Check out our website to learn more about our Research, the TeamTeaching activities, and Opportunities in our group and at KAUST.
