Personal Profile

Research Output / Publications


I started my career as an Information Technology consultant for the retail industry. During 7 years, I maturated my passion for research. A friend dragged me to academia in the field of hydrogeology. Since then, I have been developing 3D geological stochastic models characterized by spatially complex heterogeneous property fields. Motivated by questions related to uncertainty and to subsurface heterogeneity, I became an expert in multiple-point statistics, flow and transport modelling, hydro-geophysical data inversion, Bayesian inversion and optimization techniques. 

Roles and responsibilities

Now, as co-coordinator of work package 5 within the Loop project, I am focusing on uncertainty quantification, propagation and reduction. In a multi-disciplinary integrated modelling framework, uncertainty needs to be considered at every level, from data acquisition to prediction and via joint or hierarchical integration. In interaction with collaborators involved in other work packages and in co-supervising PhD students, I will develop new methods and ensure uncertainty consideration at all levels.

Research interests

I am particularly interested in questions related to subsurface characterization, spatial statistics, the modeling of geometrically complex heterogeneous structures, data inversion and integration, Bayesian inference, and rigorous characterization, propagation and reduction of uncertainty.
