Abdul Latif Ashadi

Technical Research Assistant, Laboratory Technical Support & Services

Ashadi is an Indonesian research assistant that handles numerous scopes of research, e.g., application of applied EM methodology in geothermal exploration, 3D MT modelling and inversion, general near-surface geophysics, as well as earthquake seismological studies. He finished his MS degree in Geophysics from the Geosciences Department, KFUPM in 2015. Shortly after graduation, he has been employed as a Tech. Research Assistant to handle Geophysics lab in the same department. Acquisition, processing, and interpretation of geophysical data acquired using a variety of advanced geophysical equipment is his main jobs in collaboration with students, researchers, and professors.
