Dr Sima Mousavi

Research Officer

I am an observational seismologist with a diverse range of interests and expertise. My research has encompassed earth imaging studies, ranging from the upper crust in West Bohemia to the Earth's core mantle boundary. Additionally, I'm intrested in earthquake source modeling utilizing full waveform modeling and 3D earth models.

I am responsible for running the Australian Seismometers in Schools Network. Through this program, I maintain and control a network of 50 broadband seismic stations located in schools across Australia. I'm grateful for the opportunity to travel and speak to students about the fascinating field of Earth sciences, inspiring them to pursue careers in STEM.

My contributions to the field extend to my involvement in seismic fieldwork. Notably, I have participated in fieldwork at Lake Aye in South Australia and SWAN in Western Australia, among others.
