Researcher biography

Abbas Babaahmadi received his PhD degree from the University of Queensland. His main research areas include structural geology and tectonics. He is particularly working on the tectonic history of eastern Australia from the Permian to Cenozoic through the analysis of fault systems by using geophysical data (potential field and seismic reflection data), satellite images, digital elevation models, and field observations. He has also been working on active tectonics and geological hazards (e.g., landslides) of western Iran. He is now working as a postdoctoral research fellow at the School of Earth Sciences, the University of Queensland. The main aim of his research is understanding the kinematics and reactivation history of faults in the Permian-Triassic and Jurassic basins (the Bowen and Surat basins) in eastern Australia.
