Welcome Pranav

Pranav Audhkhasi has just joined the department of Geoscience and Petroleum at NTNU as a post-doctoral research fellow in the BRU21 program. He will be working with Ass. Prof. Kenneth Duffaut and the industrial partner, Wintershall DEA, focusing towards machine learning techniques for seismic lithology prediction. Within the BRU21 program, Pranav’s project, “Automated facies classification through applying machine-learning to pre-stack seismic data” is organized within the Exploration Efficiency program area where he will be developing automated workflows to efficiently detect and classify seismic features within large seismic datasets.

Prior to joining NTNU, Pranav did his PhD from from Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris (IPGP), France, in Marine Geosciences and specializing in active source seismic imaging and tomography techniques. Before that, he did a research masters from IPGP itself and an Integrated masters from Indian Institute of Technology (IIT-ISM) Dhanbad, India, in exploration geophysics.

Welcome, Pranav!
