CWP Visiting Scholar


Nabil is a PhD student at King Abdullah University for Science and Technology (KAUST). He is working under the guidance of Prof. Tariq Alkhalifah. Nabil received a Polytechnic Engineer degree from Tunisia Polytechnic School in 2012, and received a Master's degree in geophysics from KAUST in 2014. For four months in 2012, Nabil interned at OPERA Applied Geophysical Research Group, in France, and he worked closely with Dr. Evgeny Landa on path-integral seismic imaging. In 2013, he collaborated with Prof. Ivan Psencik on ray tracing during his visit to the Institute of Geophysics, in the Czech Republic. In 2014, Nabil worked on anisotropy estimation with Prof. Alexey Stovas during his visit to Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) in Norway.

Nabil's research interests are in seismic modeling, imaging and inversion in anisotropic media. He is developing optimal strategies for multi-parameter inversion in complex structures. Nabil is also interested in ray theory and partial differential equations.

He is a member of the SEG and EAGE. Apart from academic research, Nabil enjoys traveling and sports.
