My research activity is focused on high resolution quantitative imaging of the Earth at various scales. I'm leading the SEISCOPE II research project focused on developement and application of original imaging techniques.
I
have collaborated with people from (alphabetic order) : 3SR, BRGM, BULL-ATOS, EDF, GIPSA-Lab, IFSTTAR, INTEL, INRIA, IRIT/INRIA/ENSEEIHT (MUMPS team), IRSN, JAMSTEC, NVIDIA, SAUDI ARAMCO, TOTAL...


I mainly use the full waveform inversion method to perform quantitative imaging of Earth from seismic data, but also electromagnetic data.
Full Waveform Inversion (FWI) is an appealing method to obtain high resolution quantitative images of Earth physical properties, but require to deal with challenging numerical and physical issues. My work is focused on development of methodologies and applications of FWI in the time and frequency domain, leading to different research topics :


FWI result from offshore Norway data in the Valhall field.  Left : travel time tomography. Right : Anisotropic FWI result. (From Prieux et al, 2011, GJI)

Codes

FWI : You can find here our open-source 2D frequency-domain visco-acoustic full waveform inversion code. This code can be used for your research and has been developed in the frame of the SEISCOPE project

Optimization : You can find here our open-source Optimization Tool box

In the frame of the SEISCOPE project, we also develop many other codes, not freely available.
