Jaewook (Jake) Lee is a postdoctoral geophysics researcher at the Bureau of Economic Geology (BEG). Dr. Lee received a Bachelor of Science in Earth and Environmental Sciences in 2014 from Korea University, South Korea, a Master of Science in Geophysics in 2016 from Hanyang University, South Korea, and a Ph.D. in Geophysics from UTD this year. Since 2017, he has been a research assistant supported by the UTD 3D+4D Seismic FWI Research Consortium. For his Ph.D., he developed reservoir characterization and 4D time-lapse monitoring methods for both conventional and unconventional reservoirs. He also takes a multidisciplinary approach to improving the seismic estimation of shale reservoir properties based on statistics and machine learning. He is the recipient of several awards and honors, including the BEG First Author Award, SEG/EAGE International Geosciences Student Conference presentation award, and SEG scholarships. Currently, he collaborates with the TexNet team and conducts research on building earth models using multi-disciplinary subsurface data.
