Huub Douma, Ph.D.
CGG - Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
I am a research manager at CGG in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where I enjoy working together with a group of researchers and developers to develop new data processing tools used in seismic exploration. Previously I worked at ION Geophysical as both a research and senior research geophysicist. During my employment at ION I spent the majority of my time in Princeton University as a visiting researcher, working remotely from Princeton in Jeroen Tromp's seismology group. During my time at ION, I worked on various topics, e.g., finite-frequency traveltime tomography, microseismic imaging, deghosting, anisotropic parameter estimation, surface-wave dispersion inversion for near-surface shear-wave velocity estimation, and modeling and adaptive subtraction of surface waves in laterally and vertically heterogenous media. Prior to working at ION, I was a Hess research fellow at the Geosciences department at Princeton University where I collaborated with Tony Dahlen (passed away), Guust Nolet, and Ingrid Daubechies. I am an alumnus from the Center for Wave Phenomena (CWP) at Colorado School of Mines, where I completed my PhD in 2006 under the guidance of Roel Snieder (a copy of my thesis can be found in the list of publications). Prior to my studies at CWP I was a research assistant in the Exploration Geophysics group at Utrecht University, and worked for Western Geophysical (now WesternGeco) as a field seismic analyst, data processing analyst, staff geophysicist and a research geophysicist.
