As a research data scientist at GNS Science, I am interested in leveraging geophysical. geological and geospatial data for developing data-driven solutions to geoscience research problems. My research focuses on the application of Artificial Intelligence (AI) / Machine Learning (ML) algorithms and advanced analytics to extract knowledge or insights from large datasets and the implementation of modern data science practices. I am also a geophysicist with an observational seismology background. I have experience with geophysical / geological data processing & modelling, and geospatial data-analysis using specialized computer applications and programming languages. I collaborate with a diverse group of researchers (Atmospheric science, Paleobiology, Hydrogeology, Earthquake geology and Risk engineering etc.) across GNS Science in Data-Science research.
