Welcome to my research website. I am a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Alaska Earthquake Center at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. I’m currently working with the seismic array data and developing a routine seismic array processing tool to detect and analyze seismic events in and around Alaska.
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.
