Curriculum Vitae


Chris graduated from the Colorado School of Mines with a Bachelor's degree in geophysics and a minor in geology. During this time, he interned with Transform Software/DrillingInfo, where he worked with the support staff and programmed with the development team. He has also interned with Sigma Cubed, which gave him the opportunity to analyze and interpret a channel sands reservoir and propose new locations to drill. During the summer of his first year as a graduate student, Chris was fortunate enough to be able to participate in an internship with ExxonMobil, where he worked with their 4D seismic group to evaluate a new method to increase the repeatability between all time-steps in a 4D seismic project. This past summer, Chris interned with Denbury Resources. At Denbury he was able to work with geologists and reservoir engineers to solve daily problems that occurred during the tertiary recovery phase of the Bell Creek oil field. During his time at Denbury, Chris processed data, implemented code to attenuate noise, and interpreted PP and PS seismic volumes and well logs. Chris joined CWP in Fall 2013 to work with Prof. Dave Hale.

During his free time, Chris carves wood caricatures by hand, builds potato cannons, and loves to workout.



Chris is currently working with Dr. Hale on a method to warp a PS image to a PP image without distorting the wavelet in the PS image. This warping-with-wavelets method involves convolving the PS image with a filter before and after warping. Ideally, the estimated filters used in the warping-with-wavelets method are the PP wavelet and the inverse PS wavelet. Chris's research and work interests are signal processing, formation evaluation, time lapse seismic, and geology.
