About this person

Anita Torabi is Principal Researcher and Geoscience Research Leader at Uni Research CIPR (Centre for Integrated Petroleum Research). She holds a Ph.D. in Geosciences from the University of Bergen, Norway (2008). She has led several interdisciplinary projects and supervised 8 Master students, 2 PhD and 2 Post-doc candidates. Her main research interests include the mechanism and mechanics of faulting; fault-related folding; fluid flow in deformed reservoirs; diagenesis in fault zone.
