Researcher with a PhD focused in Geophysical and Seismological data analysis. Blends fieldwork, data processing and programming experience during academic positions in Iceland, Sweden, Iran and currently in Mohn and Knipovich ridge. The experience offers solid skills in analyzing extensive data and three-dimensional structural modelling together with time series analysis processes.

  2. The Katla volcanic system imaged using local earthquakes recorded with a temporary seismic network, https://doi.org/10.1002/2016JB013044
  3. Ambient-noise tomography of Katla volcano, south Iceland, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jvolgeores.2017.09.019
  4. A peculiar cluster of microearthquakes on the eastern flank of Katla volcano, southern Iceland, https://jokulljournal.is/J67p1.pdf
  5. Three dimensional structure of the BAM region from local earthquake tomography ( The article is in Persian, it is also presented as a poster in EGU 2011, http://meetingorganizer.copernicus.org/EGU2011/EGU2011-1581.pdf)


Currently I am employed under EU 2020 INTAROS project (see http://www.intaros.eu/). The objectives of INTAROS is to develop an integrated Arctic Observation System (iAOS) by extending, improving and unifying existing systems in the different regions of Arctic. INTAROS has a strong multidisciplinary focus, with tools for integration of data from atmosphere, ocean, cryosphere and terrestrial sciences, provided by institutions in Europe, North America and Asia. Our contribution as a seismological unit of INTAROS is to further develop earthquake monitoring in the Arctic.

  1.  Developing an earthquake catalog for the Arctic region based on available earthquake catalogs covering various parts of the Arctic. The catalog, in current stage, is available online : https://catalog-intaros.nersc.no/dataset/seismic_catalog.
  2. Deploying Ocean Botom Seismographs (OBS) in Fram Strait (Greenland sea) between Aug. 2018 and Aug 2019 and in Storfjorden in Aug. 2019. (see https://vimeo.com/363997085 ). The processing of collected data is ongoing which will improve the existing regional/local earthquake cataloges.
  3. Processing collected OBS data around Loki's Castle vent field by K.G. Jebsen Centre for deep sea reserach (see https://www.uib.no/en/kgj-deepsea ).
  4. Two Raspberry Shake instrument are instelled in Longyearbyen in Jul. 2018 as a contribution to Community Base Monitoring (CBM) of INTAROS (see http://www.intaros.eu/news/recent-news/raspberry-shakes-and-earthquakes-...). The processing of these data is also ongoing.
