Meet the Faculty Chair of Earth Science and Engineering

"Come visit our Booth for an informative introduction to earth science and engineering at KAUST. We look forward to talking with you!"

Dr. Martin Mai, Professor of Earth Science and Engineering

Dr. Martin Mai is the Faculty Chair of Earth Science and Engineering and the Associate Dean of the Physical Science and Engineering Division at KAUST. Mai's research interests include the physics of earthquakes and the resulting complexity of earthquake phenomena.

The faculty of Earth Science and Engineering is housed in the Physical Science and Engineering Division. In their research they apply experimental and numerical methods to study physical and chemical processes in the atmosphere, the oceans, the subsurface and in the deep Earth. The work of students and scientists in Earth Science and Engineering addresses important problems related to oil recovery, mapping renewable energy resources, and quantifying and understanding geological and tectonic processes of the Earth. They then transform their fundamental research into applications related to quantitative hazard assessment (natural and human-induced), modern reservoir applications (description, engineering and management) environmental safety and sustainable economic development.
