  • EGLS Talk: An overview of full-waveform inversion in exploration geophysics

On March 3rd, Dr. Thomas A. Dickens will be presenting "An overview of full-waveform inversion in exploration geophysics".

Dr. Dickens received a B.S. in Physics from the University of Virginia (1981) and a Ph. D. in Theoretical Particle Physics from Princeton University in 1987, where he was awarded the Joseph Henry Prize. From 1987-1990 he was employed by MIT Lincoln Laboratory, where he worked on synthetic aperture radar and infrared imaging techniques. He joined Exxon Production Research (now ExxonMobil Upstream Research) in 1990, and has performed research in the areas of tomography, parallel computing, imaging of complex structures, anisotropic depth migration, electromagnetic inversion and FWI. Tom served as Team Lead of the Seismic Processing Research and Deep Imaging groups. His research interests include seismic and electromagnetic imaging, numerical modeling, and FWI.
