Dr. Dicky Harishidayat

Post-Doc Researcher, Department of Geosciences

Dr. Dicky is a postdoc research fellow at the College of Petroleum Engineering and Geosciences (CPG), KFUPM. Before, Dr. Dicky has more than 8 years industrial working experience as Development Geologist (TOTAL E&P Indonesie), Exploration Geologist (Azzurri Energy Ltd.), Geophysicist (EMGS Trondheim; Internship), Exploration Geologist (OKEA ASA Trondheim; Internship), Exploration Geologist (SINTEF Industry; Internship), Geomodeler (Rockseis Trondheim), and Seismic interpreter (Timelapsegeo Trondheim). His research and working area spans from New Zealand, Australia, Indonesia, China, Spain, Norway, Italy, Eastern Mediterranean Sea, Egypt, Tanzania, to Namibia.

Dr. Dicky has an expertise on seismic geomorphology and stratigraphy for petroleum prospectivity, geohazards and other natural resources.
