Evren Yarman is a senior research scientist at Houston Technology Center of WesternGeco-Schlumberger. He received the B.Sc. degree in mathematics from the Middle East Technical University, Ankara, Turkey, the M.Sc. degree in biomedical science from Drexel University, Philadelphia, PA, and the M.Sc. degree in mathematics and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy, NY, in 2006. He was a postdoctorate at Rensselaer Polytechnic Insitute before joining Schlumberger. He published 4 book chapters, 9 journal articles and many conference proceedings. He has 4 pending patents. His main research interest is inverse problems in imaging. He is a member of AMS, SIAM, IEEE, SEG & EAGE.


In the first part of this talk Yarman will be giving an overview of the research projects we are working on at WesternGeco. In the second part, he will be discussing the technical details of a method we developed to compute migration weights to account for variations in receiver illumination for better seismic imaging.
