Structure-based joint geological-geophysical inversion for improved characterization of geothermal reservoirs.
Geophysicist | EDCON-PRJ | 2013 - 2021
Critically evaluate and analyze gravity and magnetic data in the field and provide quality control, processing reports and overall data analysis to clients from different disciplines.
Rigorously process marine and airborne gravity and magnetic data using in-house software and Oasis Montaj to assess noise, navigation bias and instrument malfunction.
Communicate company workflow and products to clients through email, phone calls, face-to-face meetings, and attendance in industry events.
Interpret gravity and magnetic data using inversion, modeling, and physical techniques.
Creating, documenting, and communicating processing results through a series of presentations and publications which promotes the use of gravity and magnetic data for exploration.
Technology Consultant | Deep Imaging Technologies | Jan 2020- Mar 2020
Consulted an interdisciplinary team of software developers, production engineers, and business development advisors in a high-paced startup-up environment. The technology is focused on monitoring fluid during hydraulic fracturing operations using electromagnetic methods.
Wrote case studies explaining new technology for academic and oil and gas journals.
Automated client presentations that included real-time movies, pump curves, and completions data. I sped up the process from 1 week to a 15-minute procedure using Python.
Graduate Research Assistant | Colorado School of Mines | 2016-2017
Collaborated in an academic environment as part of CGEM (Center for Gravity and Electromagnetic methods) led by Professor Yaoguo Li
Integrated time-lapse gravity data with water/gas production data to monitor groundwater encroachment using inversion software in a gas reservoir in Western China.
Created a workflow to include geologic and production data in time-lapse gravity inversion
Prepared materials for reports, presentations, and submission to peer-reviewed journal publications
Utilized potential field inversion algorithms in Fortran/Python and developed a 3D interpolation algorithm in Matlab.
