I’m a 4th-year PhD student at the Department of Geosciences in Tel Aviv University, Israel. My research interest resides on salt deformation, salt tectonics, and its influence on basin structures via interpretation of integrated subsurface data. In the past four years, I have focused on the deformation and evolution of the Messinian evaporites in the Levant Basin at the eastern Mediterranean through 3D seismic interpretation and well log interpretation. I apply stratigraphic and seismic attributes analysis to study intra-salt faults, folds, submarine depositional fan structures, and channelized systems, for understanding salt deformation mechanisms. Moreover, in combination with seismic interpretation, I perform well log interpretation for lithology identification.
