Farhad received his Bachelor of Science degree in physics and Master of Science degree in geophysics from the University of Tehran. After graduation, Farhad worked for a few years as a geophysicist with WesternGeco and PGS Inc., and then he decided to continue his studies at CWP at the Colorado School of Mines. Farhad’s CWP advisor is Prof. Roel Snieder.
He enjoys classical music, philosophy, programming, playing the violin, swimming, and racquetball.
Optimal wave focusing
Farhad's current research involves finding an optimal solution to the problem of focusing waves inside heterogeneous media. Knowledge of an optimal wave-focusing technique can find important applications in seismic imaging and microseismic event location.
