Specialization

  Academic Identity

Currently, my main research interests are:

 

  1. Joint inversion of gravity and magnetic data using Bayesian approches for better estimating the model uncertanties.

  2. Understading the complex pattern of deformation (deflation – inflation) over a volcano using joint modelling of deformation and gravity data.

  3. Improving the stability of downward continuation of potential fields.
