Antoine Guitton

Research Assistant Professor, Geophysics

Antoine GuittonAntoine Guitton is a Research Assistant Professor in the Department of Geophysics at the Colorado School of Mines. He holds an Engineering and MS degree in geophysics (1996) from Ecole et Observatoire des Sciences de la Terre (EOST), Strasbourg. He also holds an MS (2000) and a PhD (2005) in geophysics from Stanford University, where he was a member of the Stanford Exploration Project.

Antoine’s research interests are in seismic inversion and imaging, and signal processing. In 1999, he received the Best Student Paper Award at the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) annual meeting and international convention for his work on the Huber penalty function. He is also the recipient of the European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers (EAGE) Arie Van Weelden Award (2004) and SEG Clarence Karcher Award (2007) for his work on robust norms and noise attenuation. Since 2010, Antoine has been an associate editor for the seismic inversion section of GEOPHYSICS.
