About Me Publications
Dr. Dor has been engaged in the past 17 years in research, field work and consulting in various geological disciplines including engineering geology, seismic hazard analysis, soil stability, environmental geology, sedimentology, exploration and seismic data acquisition and interpretation, both onshore and offshore. Dr. Dor's core activities are on the interface between geotechnical conditions, geological hazards, urban planning and engineering design of major infrastructures.
In the past few years Dr. Dor's research was focused on seismotectonics and active faulting, with the aim of updating and upgrading the Israeli national seismic hazard approach and database. As part of these efforts, Dr. Dor collaborates with governmental agencies on the development of regulatory guidelines for the mitigation of seismic and other geological hazards.
