David L. Alumbaugh received a B.S. (1986) in geological sciences from San Diego State University, an M.S. (1989) and Ph.D. (1993) in geophysical engineering from the University of California, Berkeley. From 1993 to 1999 he was employed at Sandia National Laboratories as a staff scientist, from 1999 to 2003 he was a professor at the University of Wisconsin in the Geological Engineering Program, and in 2003–2004 he served as a visiting professor in the Geophysics Department at Stanford University. Since 2004 has been at Schlumberger’s EMI Technology center in Richmond, California, where he is a geophysical advisor/project manager leading a research group studying the physics of, and developing interpretation methods for, electromagnetic geophysical methods as applied toward oil exploration, reservoir characterization, and water front mapping. He is also an adjunct professor in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences at the University of California Berkeley. He was the recipient of the Gerald R. Hohmann award for Excellence in Applied Electrical Geophysics in 1998 and the 1992 Best Student Paper Award from SEG. He has served as a special editor and associate editor for GEOPHYSICS.
