Research Interests

Shah Syed Tallataf Hussain hasrecently completed his PhD degree at the Institute of Tibetan Plateau Research,Chinese Academy of Sciences and serving as a Lecturer at Department of Earth-Sciences, COMSATS University, Abbottabad Campus- Pakistan since 2011.

Shah does research in ExplorationGeophysics, seismology (BB seismic installation), Magnetotelluric- sounding,Magnetics, Dendrochronology, Electric and tectonics. His most key publicationis 'Electrical resistivity structures and tectonic implications ofMain-Karakorum Thrust (MKT) in the western Himalayas: NNE Pakistan'.

Currently he is researching on Dendrochronology& the mineral prospecting in the northern Pakistan using magnetic &Geochemistry data.
