Speaker biographies

  • Joe Dellinger graduated with a PhD in Geophysics from the Stanford Exploration Project in 1991 and currently works for BP in Houston, specializing in anisotropy and multicomponent seismology. Joe has often provided advice to the SEG (much of it unsolicited) on how they should best advance into the brave new online/digital world, for which he was awarded Life Membership in 2001. Joe currently is the editor of the Software and Algorithms section of GEOPHYSICS, and maintains the accompanying software and data website. http://software.seg.org
  • Sergey Fomel has been working at the Bureau of Economic Geology at the University of Texas at Austin since 2002 and currently has an Associate Professor appointment, jointly with the Department of Geological Sciences. He received a Ph.D. in Geophysics from Stanford University in 2001 and worked previously at the Institute of Geophysics in Novosibirsk, Russia, and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Sergey started work on Madagascar (at that time named RSF for Regularly Sampled Format) in 2003. http://www.beg.utexas.edu/fomel/
  • Karl Schleicher i.
  • Ioan Vlad received an Engineer degree in geophysics (2000) from the University of Bucharest and a M.Sc. degree in geophysics (2002) from Stanford University. After three more years of research at Stanford and an internship with ConocoPhillips, he joined Statoil. He did imaging and velocity analysis R&D for Statoil for five years -- four at the Trondheim Research Center, and one as a Visiting Scientist with Colorado School of Mines. He is currently a Senior Research Geophysicist with Fusion Petroleum, Inc. He is a member of the SEG, EAGE, IEEE Computer Society, FSF and the Linux Foundation. He has been a participant in the Madagascar project since 2006.
