Dr. Jalel Jaballah

Post-Doc Researcher, Department of Geosciences

Dr. Jalel Jaballah is a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow at KFUPM-CPG. His research focuses on sedimentology, sequence stratigraphy, diagenesis, and rock physics of carbonates. He holds a Ph.D. degree in Geology from Tunis el Manar University, Tunisia in the field of sedimentology, sequence stratigraphy, and diagenesis of the Cretaceous carbonate series of Tunisia. He combined his Ph.D. studies with working on projects for the industry involving reservoir aspect characterization.
