Bio

I currently work as a Geophysical Reasearcher at CGG, based in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Previously, I was a postdoctoral Research Assistant at the University of Edinburgh on a project which adapted recently-developed geophysical methods to the fields of medical imaging and nondestructive evaluation. It was funded by the Wellcome Trust through their Institutional Strategic Support Fund, and by the Edinburgh Interferometry Project (EIP).

I obtained a Ph.D. in Geophysics in September 2017, under the advisory of Prof. Andrew Curtis. I was also a part of EIP at the time. My research focused on developing new methods of processing and imaging seismic data. In particular, my main interest centered on overcoming the presence of multiple scattering in elastic seismic data. I was and remain active in developing the theoretical and practical aspects of Marchenko imaging for multicomponent elastodynamic wavefields.

Before moving to Edinburgh, I lived in Campinas, Brazil, where I obtained my M.Sc. under the advisor of Prof. Martin Tygel at the University of Campinas. My thesis consisted in applying the method of signal processing methods (in particular, independent component analysis) to the attenuation of surface-related multiples in seismic data. Upon starting my Master's in 2011, I also joined an industry-backed research group devoted to developing processing techniques for geophysics. I participated in the development of multiple attenuation, tomography and time-to-depth conversion of velocity fields.

Despite focusing in geophysics for both of my postgraduate degrees, I actually received my Bachelor's in Mathematics with an emphasis in Pure Mathematics from the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro (PUC-Rio), Brazil, in 2011.
