Jack Dvorkin received his MS (1974) and Ph.D. (1980), both in continuum mechanics, from Moscow University, Department of Mechanics and Mathematics. His disseration topic was "Impact of Elastic Shells upon the Surface of Compressible Fluid." From 1974 to 1989 Jack worked at the Moscow Research Oil and Gas Institute, and the Moscow Offshore Oil Institute. Jack joined the Stanford Rock Physics Laboratory in July 1989. He is an AGU, SEG, SPE, and AAPG member.
