Mladen is a geophysicist with over 21 years of experience in reflection/refraction seismology and geological interpretation of seismic images. My work in academia and the petroleum industry has involved imaging methodology development, and collecting, processing and interpreting 2D and 3D seismic reflection/refraction data. These data were collected on land and at sea for various purposes, from exploration to environmental, and at various scales, from engineering to crustal. I am or have been a Principal Investigator (PI) as well as co-PI on projects funded by the US National Science Foundation, Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada, Flotte Océanographique Française, ExxonMobil, Canadian Foundation for Innovation, Nova Scotia Research and Innovation Trust, Offshore Energy Technical Research Association, LDEO Climate Center and Vetlessen Foundation, and other organizations. My current research is focused on rifting and crustal accretion processes at ultra-slow, slow, intermediate and fast-spreading centers, oceanic crustal evolution, subduction zone structure and processes, petroleum exploration at passive margins, current deformation, and seismic oceanography.
