2013, Yogesh graduated from the Indian School of Mines in Dhanbad, with his Bachelor and Master of Science degrees in Applied Geophysics via a five-year program. He completed his Master's thesis with the Gas Hydrate research group of National Institute of Oceanography in Goa. For his Master's thesis, he estimated P-wave anisotropic parameters in orthotropic media containing two sets of mutually orthogonal fractures in isotropic background. This model aims to resemble the Gas Hydrate occurrences in the Krishna-Godavari (KG) basin located in southern India.
His CWP advisor is Prof. Ilya Tsvankin. Yogesh's research interests are seismic anisotropy, seismic imaging and inversion. His hobbies include: hiking, playing tennis and trying exotic cuisine.
Yogesh is currently working on diffraction processing for anisotropic models for imaging and inversion. His aim is to make diffractions part of the anisotropic parameter estimation. He uses ray-based methods like Kirchhoff migration for creating images from just diffractions and building angle domain common image gathers.
