Name: Dr. Meysam Rezaeifar
Position: Post-doctoral Research Fellow
2009 – B.S.c in Mining Engineering, Shahid Bahonar University, Kerman, Iran
2011 – M.S.c in Seismology, Institute of Geophysic, University of Technology, Kerman, Iran
2018 – Ph.D. in Seismology, Institute of Geophysic, ETH Zurich, Switzerland
I do research in seismology and tomography and I am interested in geophysical imaging, seismic imaging of crustal and lithospheric mantle structures, using passive seismic data and methods. I am currently working on the following projects:
– PACIFIC: replacing the active seismology method with enviroment friendly passive seismology method. In this project we try to use ambient noise data to extract seismic body waves and retrieve 2/3D reflection image like those from oil companies.
– Sierra Negra: Finding uppermost crustal structures of Sierra Negra Volcano, Ecuador using high resolution seismic travel-time tomography.
– Lithosphere structure beneath Ireland: : Finding crustal and probably uppermost mantel structures of Ireland by applying high resolution seismic travel-time tomography technique on quarry blasts data.
