After graduating with a B.Sc.(Hons), Andy
worked for seven and a half years as a petroleum geophysicist with Esso
Australia Ltd., mainly in seismic interpretation, production geology and
computer applications. He is now coordinator for the NCPGG curriculum and
teaches NCPGG courses in processing and interpretation of seismic data.
Andy is also NCPGG Postgraduate Coordinator, and the staff member responsible
for computer hardware and applications. His research interests centre on
the use of reflection seismic data for detailed studies, such as for stratigraphic
and/or development projects, and include:
Stratigraphic interpretation techniques, particularly
for thin beds
Seismic velocity analysis and interpretation
Seismic modelling and inversion
Computer applications in petroleum geophysics
Interpretation of seismic and engineering
data for reservoir description and modelling
