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 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 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 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 is applying fuzzy c-means clustering algorithm to multiple attributes derived from potential field data for data segmentation and prospectivity mapping. He is also interested in the joint inversion of multiple data sets and its application in mining industry.
Taqi Alyousuf is a Ph.D. student at the geophysics department. He is interested in the development of multi-physics joint inversion platform using seismic and non-seismic technologies, including transient time domain, magnetotelluric and controlled-source electromagnetic for subsurface and reservoir characterization. Taqi had research experience for the last seven years at Saudi Aramco EXPEC Advanced Research Center.
Nil is interested in making more reliable magnetic models for a better understanding of the activities of the tectonic and magnetic field in the past. She focuses on the cases where the remnant magnetization effect is dominant enough to be identified from magnetic data. She is also planning to combine seismic and non-seismic methods to enhance qualitative interpretation of the subsurface.
Hanna is working on a humanitarian project addressing landslides related to the excessive agricultural runoff in Peru. She is using various geophysical methods to investigate how the geology of the region influences the hydrogeology and landslide risk.
He is developing a directional transmitting antenna for more accurate detection in the urban underground space. He is also interested in information extraction based on correlation superposition algorithm and the related interpretation algorithm development.
Yujing is interested in modeling pre-polarization surface/underground nuclear magnetic resonance data used in underground water exploration. She is also developing a joint inversion algorithm of gravity and surface nuclear magnetic resonance methods.
