Ivan Vasconcelos – 2018 EUROPEAN SEG HONORARY LECTURER, first obtained a BSc in geophysics from the University of Sao Paulo, Brazil, in 2003. He then pursued a PhD in geophysics (2007) with the Center for Wave Phenomena at the Colorado School of Mines. After finishing his PhD, Vasconcelos joined the seismic industry first at ION Geophysical as a research geophysicist (2007-2010), and then joined Schlumberger Gould Research in Cambridge (2010), first as a senior, then principal research scientist until 2016. During his time in industry he was a visiting scholar at Edinburgh University (2010-2011) working closely with the Edinburgh Interferometry Project. Since 2016, he is an assistant professor of applied geoscience at Utrecht University in the Netherlands: where he conducts research on wave propagation, imaging of global- and exploration-scale seismic data, radar imaging for cryosphere and planetary applications, and on the connections between imaging in geophysics and the medical fields. Vasconcelos acts as a technical reviewer not only in the field of geophysics, but also in applied mathematics (SIAM, Inv. Prob.), physics (Phys. Review, J. Appl. Phys.), and engineering (IEEE). He serves SEG as Assistant Editor for Special Sections (2012-2015) of Geophysics. He continues to serve as an Associate Editor for the journal. In 2013, Ivan was awarded an honorary mention for best paper in Geophysics, and in 2015, SEG granted him the J. Clarence Karcher Award for his contributions to seismic interferometry, imaging, and redatuming.
