Biography

I am a PhD candidate at KAUST in the Physical Science and Engineering division and affiliate with the Seismic Wave Analysis Group, Deep Imaging Group, and Extreme Computing Research Center. I am working closely under the supervision of Tariq Alkhalifah and Matteo Ravasi. 

Apart from research, I am also actively involved with philanthropy, supporting cerebral palsy, neurodiversity, and cancer organizations in Malaysia and Russia.

Research Interests

Deep generative modeling, uncertainty quantification, deep learning and, waveform imaging & inversion.
