Ph.D, Petroleum Exploration Engieering, Amir Kabir University of Technology (Tehran Poly Technique), (2018). Dissertation Title: Channel Boundary Detection based on Shearelet Transformation for Hydrocarbon Resource Exploration.

M.Sc, Petroleum Exploration Engineering, Petroleum University of Technology, (2013). Thesis Title: Lithofacies Discrimination using Elastic Impedance Inversion.

Research Interests

The research at DIAS will sit within Geohazards Project in collaboration with Irish Centre for Research in Applied Geosciences (iCRAG). The particular goal of the project is to develop new methods for real time monitoring of temporal variations in karst moduli.

Prior to joining DIAS, Haleh worked as seismic data interpreter at the National Iranian Oil Company (NIOC).

Her research interests cover a wide range of topics including seismology, reservoir geophysics, seismic inversion and image processing.
