When other children played with mud, I put it under a microscope.🔬
I discovered my love for science when I was 9 years old. I asked all my relatives and friends to bring me sand samples from vacation and analyzed them with a sieve and microscope, wondering if I could just take any sand and put it into an hourglass. Today, I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Geophysics/Oceanography, a Master’s degree in Geophysics, as well as a PhD in Machine Learning for Geophysics from the Technical University of Denmark (#103 QS) in collaboration with Heriot-Watt University (#301 QS) in Edinburgh, Scotland.
Iɴ ᴍʏ Bᴀᴄʜᴇʟᴏʀ, I used multi-parameter stacking for seismic interpolation.
Iɴ ᴍʏ Mᴀsᴛᴇʀ, I compared those stacks to diffraction imaging and the standard seismic analysis workflow.
Iɴ ᴍʏ PʜD, I accomplished a few things: I was the first to publish on transfer learning for automatic seismic interpretation. I was part of the team that first tried and published on GANs for seismic inversion. I reviewed the 70-year history of machine learning in geoscience as a book chapter in Advances in Geophysics. I adapted an MIT algorithm for 4D seismic time shift extraction that does not rely on biased ground truth data.
Tᴏᴅᴀʏ I work with deep learning in physical systems with experience in integrating expert knowledge in architectures, heterogeneous data sources, and self-supervised training to avoid label bias. Oh, and I’m a full-time Scientist for Machine Learning at the ECMWF.
