Data Is Not Neutral

  I like data driven processes. You’ve seen me drum on about CRS and Full-Waveform Inversion. Sometimes we like to pretend that data is pure. Well , it’s noisy and full of kinks but if we process it just right, we extract the truth. Turns out that is a little bit wrong. The data collection […]

My Interview with the EAGE about the Way of the Geophysicist

My fellow students already asked me about it and now you can read it online! I enjoyed talking in the interview with Kirsten Brandt and I do hope more opportunities like this may arise.

This is called a reservoir rock. These things include oil and gas but are also very important for CO2 Sequestration. This is a process […]

They basically involve some sort of experiment with oscillation or wave-like motion, with a twist. But see the first video for yourself: Coupled pendulums https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kqFc4wriBvE Personally I […]
