SchlumbergerJanuary 2013 - December 2014

I have developed processing algorithms for surface microseismic monitoring (use of matlab/mex/C/parallel C). Several IP in the line. And I have processed a few frackjob.

SEG 2014: The paper presents how dramatic noise reduction can be obtained while using a patch design for acquisition of microseismic events to remove first coherent noise, then incoherent noise. Claims are backed with evidences from real data.

Courses followed:
March 2014: Seismic Imaging of Subsurface Geology, by Walter Lynn, one-week class
July 2013: PTS "MicroSeismic Processing and Interpretation using Mizen/Petrel", by Les Benett, one-week class.
Mar 2013: "Concepts and Applications of 3D Seismic Imaging", by Prof. Biondi biondo, WG, Houston, 2 day class.
Feb 2013: "Fundamentals of Omega", By Mike Walsh, WG, Houston, one-week class.

December 2013: "Microseismic Monitoring Fundamentals", one-day class by Joel Le Calvez, Ph.D. / Paolo Primiero, Ph.D.
November 2013: IPIMS, "Microseismic Studies of Reservoirs".

Books read:
"A petroleum geologist's guide to seismic reflection" by W. A. Ashcroft
"Seismic Interpretation:The Physical Aspects" by Nigel Anstey

Spouse-employedMay 2011 - December 2012

Learned numerous skills that are very valuable for the working place :
 - great sensitivity to the needs of the customer
 - ability to multitask
 - how to fit in a mostly feminine team
 - ability to research and listen to the voice of experience, while keeping own judgement
 - design a very personalized pedagogical program
 - ability to go hands-on

+ Teach Physics to junior/sophomore

+ Finish article from previous positions.

University of HawaiiSeptember 2008 - November 2010

The goal was to 1) develop, customize and apply new MRI methodologies. 2) Prepare reports and articles of the findings.

I worked there on 3 projects:
1) Separation of Glutamine from Glutamate with a multi-echo Magnetique spectroscopic data. (proved to be impossible)
2) Optimization of Water measurement sequence by use of Cramer-Rao Bounds (paper under review, MRM)
3) Evaluation of motion originated noise and way to compensate it by the use of Cramer-Rao Bounds (In the finishing process)

University of Hawaii at ManoaSeptember 2006 - February 2008

I developed array signal processing algorithms to detect, monitor, separate heartbeat and respiration signal though a Doppler radar (1 book chapter, 6 conf.).

I supervised student to develop the completing software to detect the cardiopulmonary statistic with this Doppler radar.

I also continued research on SSR ( 2 journals in IJMWT, 10 conf.)
