Lucas ANDRADE DE ALMEIDA
Lucas graduated in 2013 from the Universidade Federal da Bahia (UFBA) in Brazil, with a Bachelor of Science degree in geophysics. His undergraduate research centered on multiresolution transforms and its applications on seismic processing. In 2015, Lucas obtained his Master of Science degree in applied geophysics from UFBA, along with a Specialization degree in petroleum engineering. His graduate studies continued on the same research topic as his undergraduate research, for which he was awarded a fellowship from the Agência Nacional de Petróleo (ANP).
Lucas joined CWP in August 2015 and his advisor is Prof. Paul Sava. Outside of geophysics research, he enjoys reading, playing chess and running.
Lucas' main research interest is in studying low-dimensional models for seismic data. He is interested in finding ways to represent seismic data concisely and use this information to develop robust regularization schemes for inverse problems. Currently, Lucas is working on missing trace reconstruction techniques using the compressive sensing framework.
