Students, Scholars, and Alumni

Joe Capriotti, PhD Candidate

Joe Capriotti
PhD Candidate

Joe is developing coupled inversion methods to find reservoir parameters from time-lapse gravity data and applying clustering inversion to recover anisotropic parameters using time-lapse gravity and electrical resistivity data sets.  He has also developed a joint inversion of gravity and gravity gradient data.

Liz Maag-Capriotti, PhD Candidate

Liz Maag-Capriotti
PhD Candidate

Liz is applying the guided fuzzy c-means clustering technique to discrete-valued inversions of gravity, gravity gradient, and induced polarization data sets. She is also developing a gravity inversion using the finite element method to solve the gravity PDE.

Andy McAliley, PhD Candidate

Andy McAliley
PhD Candidate

Andy is developing tools to incorporate structural and petrophysical information into geophysical inversion using machine learning techniques. He is applying these tools to electromagnetic and thermal geophysical data.

Andréa Darrh, PhD Student

Andréa Darrh
PhD Student

Andréa is interested in modeling anisotropic conductivity with electrical and electromagnetic methods for use in geologic interpretation. She is also interested in the integration of multiple geophysical data sets in solid earth geophysics.

Zhuo Liu, MSc Student

Zhuo Liu
MSc Student

Zhuo is modeling anisotropy in magnetic susceptibility for potential application to mineral exploration. He is also interested in quantitative interpretation of multiple geophysical data sets for use in the mining industry.

Seungwook Shin, Post-Doctoral Fellow

Seungwook Charlie Shin
Post-Doctoral Fellow
