Biography


Paul Sava is the C.H. Green Chair of Exploration Geophysics and Director of the Center for Wave Phenomena at Colorado School of Mines. He holds an Engineering degree in Geophysics (1995) from the University of Bucharest, an M.Sc. (1998) and a Ph.D. (2005) in Geophysics from Stanford University where he was a member of the Stanford Exploration Project. His main research interests are in wavefield seismic imaging, stochastic imaging and inversion, computational methods for wave propagation, numeric optimization and high performance computing.

He is a recipient of a Stanford Graduate Fellowship (1997-2000) from Stanford University and of a Jackson Young Scientist Fellowship (2006-2007) from the University of Texas (Austin). He is also a recipient of three Awards of Merit for best student presentations at the SEG conventions (1999, 2001 and 2004) and of a Honorable Mention in the category Best Paper in Geophysics (2003) for Angle-domain common-image gathers by wavefield continuation methods, co-authored by Sergey Fomel.

The Society of Exploration Geophysicists recognized him in 2007 with the Reginald Fessenden Award for his work on wave-equation angle-domain imaging.

He is a member of SEG and EAGE, served as Education Officer on the EAGE Board from 2012-2016, and currently serves as Chair of the EAGE Student Fund Board.
