About

Omid Dorostkar

I am a Postdoctoral Researcher splitting my time between University of Oxford and ETH Zürich. I study frictional instabilities in geophysical flows using soft (condensed) matter physics and, in particular, fluid-solid interactions in granular/porous materials. I am also interested in developing predictive models using Artificial Intelligence (Deep/Machine Learning) for understanding the underlying physics of hydro-mechanical instabilities. My background is in civil engineering, with a specialization in geomechanics from the interdisciplinary perspectives of engineering, geophysics and physics. I received my PhD from ETH Zürich in 2018.
