“Physics / Data / Robotics: Pushing the Frontiers of Oilfield Technology”

April 27, 2017 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm America/New York Timezone
MIT Lincoln Laboratory
5 Forbes Rd
Lexington, MA 02421

Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society and co-sponsoring Aerospace and Electronic Systems Society

Speaker: Dr. Julius Kusuma

This talk is an overview of how physics, data, and robotics play a key role in the oilfield domain at every scale, from in-situ measurement of geophysical and petro-physical properties to smart drilling solutions; from reservoir modelling to production optimization. Interdisciplinary advances in science and engineering are cornerstones in enabling these showcases, with particular emphasis on electrical engineering innovations in signal processing, analysis, and control systems.

Julius Kusuma joined Schlumberger in 2006, where he is a Program Manager and a Principal Scientist with the Schlumberger-Doll Research Center in Cambridge, MA. His research focuses on communication and signal processing systems for oilfield applications, including mud pulse telemetry, acoustic telemetry, data compression, and underwater communication. He received the B.S.E.E. degree (highest distinction) from Purdue University, the M.S.E.E. degree from the University of California, Berkeley, CA, USA, and the Ph.D. degree from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA, USA, in 2006, where he was an MIT Presidential Fellow. He was a recipient of the Rappaport Scholarship Award and the Demetri Angelakos Memorial Award.
