Speaker #1: Chelsea Newgord, UT-Austin, Intern at Shell
Title: Interpretation of Electrical Resistivity Measurements for Mixed-Wet Rocks: Experimental Core-Scale Application and Model Verification

Chelsea Newgord is an intern at Shell in the Reservoir Quantitative Interpretation group. Her project is related to quantifying 4D seismic and geomechanics models to understand the production-driven compaction in a Gulf of Mexico reservoir. She is a Master's student in the Hildebrand Department of Petroleum and Geosystems Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin. Previously, she worked as a reservoir geophysicist at Sigma³ Integrated Reservoir Services in Denver from 2012 to 2017. She holds a BS degree (2012) in geophysical engineering from Colorado School of Mines, with minors in geology and public affairs. She is a current member of SPWLA, SPE, and SEG. Her research interests include core-analysis, petrophysics, and reservoir characterization.

Speaker #2: Iris Yang, Stanford University, Intern at ExxonMobil
Title: CNN-based seismic facies classification from 3D seismic data

Yunfei "Iris" Yang is a PhD candidate in Geophysics at Stanford University. She holds B.S. in Civil Engineering from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and M.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Stanford. Her research focuses on rock physics, petrophysics and geomechanics of unconventionals, and recently the integration of deep learning with seismic data. Currently, she is an intern with ExxonMobil geoscience group. Previously, she interned twice with Halliburton, focusing on the R&D of wireline sonic tools.

Speaker #3: Nirjhor Chakraborty, Penn State, Intern at BP
Title: Dynamic Imaging of Gas Storage and Transport in Shale

Nirjhor Chakraborty is an intern at BP in the area of Petrophysics. He has obtained his B.Tech in Petroleum Engineering, from RGIPT, India, followed by a M.S. Petroleum Engineering 2015, Penn State. He is currently pursuing his Ph.D. in Penn State (expected 2018). His research interests include digital image processing and analysis techniques, unconventional shales, and gas storage and transport physics at micro and nano-meter scales.

Speaker #4: Vishal Das, Stanford University, Intern at Shell
Title 1: Numerical simulation of coupled fluid-solid interaction at the pore scale: A Digital Rock Physics Technology
Title 2: Convolutional Neural Network for Seismic Impedance Inversion

Vishal Das is a PhD candidate at the Stanford Rock Physics and Borehole Geophysics project, and is currently doing his internship in the Petrology and Rock Properties technology team at Shell. His PhD research is related to modeling of viscoelastic phenomenon and using viscoelasticity information for quantitative seismic interpretation. As part of his research he uses numerical modeling and machine learning techniques to understand and model viscoelastic phenomenon at different scales. Prior to joining Stanford for his PhD, he received his Master's degree in applied geophysics from Indian School of Mines and worked as a geoscientist doing seismic interpretation and static reservoir modeling for 3 years with Schlumberger, India.
