Welcome to my research website. I am a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Alaska Earthquake Center at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. I’m currently interested in utilizing signal processing techniques to work on Alaskan seismic array data. We are currently working on developing a routine seismic array processing tool to detect and analyze seismic events in and around Alaska. Check out our recent AGU poster (2020).  

I defended my Ph.D. thesis (August 2018) titled “Seismotectonics of Iran and Turkey from calibrated earthquake relocations”. I got my first Ms.C. degree from METU where I studied earthquake seismology and second MS.C degree from CSM where I studied planetary geophysics.

My Ph.D. research focuses on source characteristics of earthquakes; earthquake location and waveform modeling, and satellite remote sensing. I specifically work on achieving minimally-biased (calibrated), absolute earthquake locations. These calibrated locations typically have epicentral errors less than 5 km, and for recent events with available near-source data, focal depths can be constrained within 5 km of errors.
