Dr. Sivaram K

Dr. Sivaram Krishnavajjhala is currently working as a Principal Scientist in Seismology Division under the sub-division: Seismic Imaging Group, CSIR-National Geophysical Research Institute, Hyderabad, India. He has a versatile educational and career profile with PhD degree in Geophysics from the Kurukshetra University, Haryana, India (2014), M.Tech from J.N.T.U, Hyderabad, India (1999) and B.Tech (Electrical & Electronics) in 1993 from the Nagarjuna University, India.

He has a wide ranging theoretical and field experience in Passive Seismology, and is actively involved in the Seismic Tomography and Seismic Hazard studies, like Estimation of Attenuation parameter, Simulation of Strong Ground Motions, Site Response studies and Seismic Anisotropy studies for different geological regions in India. His Research outputs are seen in the many publications in peer reviewed journals in the subjects dealing with seismic tomography, site response studies, source parameter estimation, and seismic wave attenuation analysis, Seismic Anisotropy. Under Mission mode projects and in-house CSIR-NGRI projects, he has successfully deployed a large set of broadband seismological stations in Andaman Islands, Central India, Uttarakhand Himalaya, Dharwar craton, Southern Granulite Terrain, Lonar crator region, EDC-DVP and recently the Kumaon Himalaya and Aravalli regions in India, and contributed immensely in the generation and seismological modeling of the acquired quality datasets.

He is additionally contributing in academics in ACSiR, CSIR-NGRI, and teaching various topics in Seismology. He is also supervising a number of students for their Phd and M.tech (Geophysics) dissertations.  He is additionally contributing in the CSIR-NGRI infrastructure and services.
