Welcome Umed!

Umed Kakhkhorov started his PhD at Department of Geoscience and Petroleum . Umed is going to investigate inverse method for ocean bottom seismic data, with focus on elastic Full Waveform Inversion. The objective of the research is to develop and explore high resolution crustal-scale P-wave (Vp) and S-wave (Vs) velocity model building and anisotropy analyses. Developing inversion methods for Vs and other elastic properties provide essential data in solving questions related to fluid flow and pore pressure in subduction zones. The main supervisor is Børge Arntsen (NTNU) and co-supervisors are Espen Birger Raknes (NTNU, AkerBP) and Wiktor Waldemar Weibull (UiS).

Umed is a group member of Geophysics and Applied Mathematics in Exploration and Safe production (#GAMES) project.

Umed has a master degree in geoscience engineering from University of Stavanger.
