(PhD student with Prof. Mai, 2016) continued to University of Canterbury, New Zealand


Research Interests

I am interested in Earthquake seismology, Bayesian inference, and spatial statistics. My research at KAUST focused on quantifying uncertainty in kinematic inversions and analyzing the spatial pattern of slip models.
