Keyvan is working on upper Paleozoic biostratigraphy, sedimentology and paleogeography using several proxies to reach the final interpretation with large-scaled geological implications. Previously, he worked for a decade on sedimentary rocks of Iran (Alborz, Central Iran and Zagros), mainly upper Paleozoic and published nearly 20 international-domestic research articles and books.
The Carboniferous (358.9-298.9Ma) witnessed profound changes in the Earth System, most notably significant palaeoclimatic fluctuations associated with the onset of the Late Paleozoic Ice Age, along with palaeo-oceanographical and tectonic events stimulated by the final stages of assembly of the Pangean supercontinent. Ireland has an extensive rock record from this time interval and is an excellent location for Carboniferous research with economically considerable Mississippian Pb-Zn reservoirs.
