Text Box: Research Interests

3D and 4D seismic reflection data processing and interpretation for reservoir characterization and time lapse (4D) monitoring of Carbon Dioxide, CO2, for sequestration and/or enhanced oil recovery (EOR) and reservoir characterization purposes.
Multi-variate seismic attributes analysis, Factor Analysis, Neural Networks, and multi-resolution analysis
Integration of various geo-data for optimized reservoir management , risk analysis, and validated seismic interpretation
Time-frequency analysis in the wavelet transform domain for signal de-noising and multi-resolution analysis.
Recently, I am interested in high-resolution near-surface seismic reflection and GPR applications to 3D geological mapping, hydrogeological characterization, and/or environmental/contaminants mapping.
