Short presentation

Structural geology is my main research area, where I combine surface and subsurface data with analogue and numerical models to understand geological processes and structures. I work with modelling of rock-deforming processes in the crust and mantle lithosphere. My research has direct application to hydrocarbon and mineral exploration, groundwater accumulation and aquifer deformation, geological waste disposals, landslides and slope stability, and understanding earthquakes in mountian ranges.

Education:

- B.Sc. 1982, Sulimani University, Kurdistan-Iraq

- Ph.D. 1989, Uppsala University, Sweden

- Post-doc (1991-1993), Bureau of Economic Geology, University of Texas at Austin, Texas, USA

- Habilitation (Docent), 1994, Uppsala University, Sweden

- Promotion to professor, 2003, Uppsala University, Sweden

Structural geology is my main research field. I combine surface and subsurface data with analogue and numerical models to sudy geoloigcal processes and structures in the crust and mantle lithosphere. My research has direct application to hydrocarbon ( Energy) and mineral exploration ( Natural resources), groundwater accumulation and aquifer deformation, geological waste disposals ( Environment) , landslides and slope stability ( Hazard), and understanding earthquakes in mountian belts ( Hazard).
