Dr. Simanchal Padhy

Personal profile

Simanchal Padhy has Master degrees in Electronics as well as Applied Geophysics from IIT (ISM), Dhanbad (1998) and a PhD in Seismology from the Osmania University (2005). Since 1999, he works as research scientist working on "seismic wave propagation and scattering" in seismological observatory of National Geophysical Research Institute, Hyderabad. Meanwhile, he worked at the Leipzig University (Germany), Tohoku University, and Earthquake Research Institute of the Tokyo University (Japan).

Research interests

Main research interest is to understand seismic wave propagation and scattering in complex media and hence to image heterogenities of the medium. Fields of application focus on high-frequency (>1 Hz) seismology on local to regional scale, high-resolution waveform modeling in subduction zones, imaging earth with ambient noise (passive) analysis, and engineering seismology (ground motion evaluation). Additionally, I am also interested in signal processing, understanding seismicity in the scope of non-linear dynamics including fractals, and reservoir characterization (exploration seismology) with passive data analyses.

Toward professional services, he serves as a reviewer for Journal of Geophysical Research (Solid earth), Geophysical Journal International, Bulletin of Seismological Society of America, Physics of the Earth and Planetary Interiors, Geophysics, Tectonophysics, among others.
