In October and November, a trilogy of webinars on machine learning in
geoscience will be organized. Organized on three consecutive Mondays,
students will have the chance to participate in standalone webinars on this
The deliveries will be scheduled for 19, 26 October and 2 November.
Each of the three webinars will focus on a different aspect of machine
learning: Outlier Detection (19 October), Image Analysis (26 October) and
Geomechanical Prediction (2 November).
The webinars will be delivered by Prof. Siddarth Misra from the Texas A&M
University, USA. The EAGE Student Fund would like to thank Prof. Misra for
his time and dedicated putting forward this interesting set of webinars for
students to participate in.
Prof. Siddharth Misra is an Associate Professor in Harold Vance Department
of Petroleum Engineering at Texas A&M University. He is an educator
across the disciplines of formation evaluation, petrophysics, geophysics,
and subsurface data analytics. His research focusses on machine learning,
subsurface characterization and sensing.
Misra holds a Ph.D. in Petroleum Engineering from The University of Texas
at Austin. Prior to that, from 2007 to 2010, he worked as a Wireline Field
Engineer in Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and USA with Halliburton. He received his
undergraduate degree in Electrical Engineering from Indian Institute of
Technology Bombay, India, in 2007.
Similar to our Student Lecture Tours, Prof. Misra’s webinars will be
delivered as part of our dedicated offering to student chapters. Student
chapter representatives from our Latin American university chapters play
an active role in the organization and promotion of the events. Through this
approach, we give student chapters an active role on determining what
courses to get involved in.
