Perspective students should have strong background in applied and computational mathematics and high level computing skills. Possible research projects/topics include numerical solution to time-dependent PDEs, computational methods for seismic inversion problems,  efficient and accurate numerical methods for seisimic imaging problems and applictions in energy industry, inverse modelling and adjoint analysis.  Interested applicants are encouraged to contact me prioir to submit your application. 

Statement of Graduate Supervision

I am currently recruiting graduate students in both MSc an PhD levels. Successful student should be self-motivated, with strong backgroud in Applied and Computational Mathematics and programming skills in Matlab, Fortran or Python.
