Computational geosciences, reservoir geophysics, seismic attenuation, and acoustical resonance spectroscopy

Research

My research interests address a range of problems related to the physics and mathematics of seismic and electromagnetic waves in complex media. My approach to these problems includes theory, numerical simulation, laboratory methods, and the analysis of field data. My group, known as the Stanford Wave Physics Laboratory, specializes on high frequency borehole methods and low frequency labratory methods. We apply this research to the characterization and monitoring of petroleum, water, and CO2 storage reservoirs.

Teaching

I teach courses on the mathematics and physics of seismic and electromagnetic waves, and borehole seismic profiling and tomography.

Professional Activities

I was the First Vice President of the Society of Exploration Geophysicists in 2003-04, and have served as the Distinguished Lecturer for the SPE, SEG, and AAPG. I served as First Vice President of the Society of Exploration Geophysicists and with the Editorial Board of the Leading Edge (in geophysics).
