Research Interests

The Earth internal structure and activities have a deterministic impact on the surface natural phenomena, I am interested to determine its seismic structure and dynamic processes with geophysical techniques. Currently by utilizing broadband seismic data recorded on the recently expanded station network in Saudi Arabia, operated by Saudi Geological Survey, I am performing receiver function combining with surface waves to study the Moho-depth and magma chamber across Saudi Arabia.
