Research Interests

​I am interested in 3-D seismic waveform inversion and imaging of the Earth's interior using state of the art computational techniques. My research is currently focused on using the trans-dimensional Bayesian inversion in order to better quantify the data uncertainties as well as to get the models which are more data driven and self adaptive. In this regard, I also want to use the supercomputer simulations and HPC algorithms in order to improve the resolution and reliability of our imaging.
