Sadegh Karimpouli is currently Associate Professor in exploration geophysics and rock physics at University of Zanjan, Iran. He received his PhD in seismic exploration in 2013 at Amirkabir University of Technology, Iran, and Uppsala University, Sweden. During his graduate studies, he worked on reservoir characterization, facies inversion and diffraction delineation from seismic data. Since 2013, he focused on Digital Rock Physics (DRP) and tried to find ways to estimate 3D properties of rock using 2D thin section images. He also developed Deep Learning methods in DRP studies by applying various networks from Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN) to Physics Informed Neural Networks (PINN) for mineral/fracture segmentation and estimation of rock physical parameters such as permeability and wave velocity.
