My research interest is mostly focused on seismic imaging and macro velocity model building. In Aramco, I am part of the project for 3D advanced Reverse Time Migration, I developed a code for compressing the wavefield and the compression ratio can be up to 40x. The code is routinely used in production by Aramco, and Aramco are applying for a US patent for this efficient compression technology.
In KAUST, cooperated with Prof. Tariq Alkhalifah, I developed a Robust method of combining optimal transport and matching filter in full-waveform inversion for reducing cycle skipping. This technique is applying for a US patent currently. Now, as AI becomes popular, I am also interested in applying machine learning technology to seismic imaging and inversion problem.
