Carlos Alberto da Costa Filho

Visual das Águas


Carlos received his Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics with an emphasis in Pure Mathematics from the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro (PUC-Rio), Brazil, in 2011. He received his Master of Science degree in Applied Mathematics from the University of Campinas, Brazil, in 2013.

His Master's thesis consisted in applying the method of independent component analysis (ICA) to the attenuation of surface-related multiples in seismic data. Upon starting his Master's in 2011, he joined an industry-backed research group devoted to applying signal processing techniques to geophysics. He carried out studies related to multiple attenuation, tomography and time-to-depth conversion of velocity fields. Upon completion of his Master's degree, he joined the Edinburgh Interferometry Project (EIP) in August 2013 to purse a Ph.D. in Geophysics, under the advisory of Prof. Andrew Curtis.

Currently, he focuses on imaging primaries and internal multiples in elastic data. To achieve that, he and his colleagues have been developing the theoretical and practical aspects of Marchenko imaging and autofocus imaging to multicomponent elastodynamic wavefields.
