Welcome! On these pages you will find some general information about me and my career so far. Please contact me if you have any questions or comments. Thanks for your interest!
I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at Cornell University. I am continuing to work as part of the Cornell Syria Project as I have been since July 1995. I completed my Ph.D. in Geophysics in the Department of Geological Sciences at Cornell in December 2000. My Ph.D.advisor was Muawia Barazangi. Here is a picture of our research group.
The Cornell Syria Project aims to study the regional tectonics of Syria and the surrounding northern Arabian platform using industry seismic reflection data and other data sources. I am currently synthesizing our interpretations of Syria, and constructing regional tectonic and structural maps for the country. My previous research has involved investigating northeastern Syria using seismic reflection data, seismic refraction interpretation from eastern Syria, and a study of the Ghab Basin on the Dead Sea Fault System in western Syria.
I am due to leave Cornell around the middle of 2001 to pursue an exploration career in the oil industry.
