About the Lecturer
Ivan Abakumov received his Bachelor's (2009) and Master's (2012) degrees in Physics from St. Petersburg State University. While studying, Ivan was working as a teacher of computer science in high school and conducted advanced mathematics courses for high school graduates. After receiving his Master's degree, Ivan completed internships in Microseismics s.r.o. (Czech Republic) and Shell (The Netherlands). From 2012 to 2015, Ivan participated with Shell in a research project aimed at characterising of velocity anomalies in time-lapse seismic. From late 2013, Ivan worked on a PhD thesis related to multidimensional stacking and CRS in the University of Hamburg, Germany. Ivan has worked for short-term research projects in Trofimuk Institute of Petroleum Geology and Geophysics (Novosibirsk, Russia) and in the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (Trondheim, Norway). After receiving his PhD, Ivan has worked as a research scientist at Freie Universität Berlin since September 2017. He is currently working on microseismic data inversion. Ivan is also interested in development and collection of open-source seismic software.
