    I am a Canadian born and raised and currently living in The Hague, Netherlands where I work as a geophysicists for Shell. I have undergraduate degrees in Physics and Geophysics and an M.Sc. in Geophysics from the University of Saskatchewan (Saskatoon, Canada) and a Ph.D. in Geophysics from the University of Alberta (Edmonton, Canada) where I did research in crustal structure using controlled source seismology. My first experiences in the geophysical industry were in specialised seismic analyses and then in potential fields with extensions to geothermics and basin modelling. My amateur interests are in archaeology and particularly in geophysical studies and remote sensing applied to archaeology.
