Assistant Professor, Geological and Mining Engineering and Sciences

Dr. Oommen’s research efforts focus on developing improved susceptibility characterization and documentation of geo-hazards (e.g. earthquakes, landslides) and spatial modeling of georesource (e.g. mineral deposits) over a range of spatial scales and data types. To achieve his research interests, he has adopted an inter-disciplinary research approach from two main areas, . . .
