Research Interest

 Application of geophysical prospecting technologies on

•Development of methodology for interpretation of Potential field methods for mineral exploration.
•The imaging and evaluation of subsurface structure using electric/electromagnetic and GPR
•Developed technologies are applied mainly to civil engineering, such as the safe assessments of the basement evaluation, and extending its application  to the environmental problems like the soil and groundwater contamination, and to the archeological survey.
•Landmine detection and clutter-landmine discrimination
•Application of ground penetrating radar for utilities detection and leakage identifications.
