Biography 1992 
Jacques Lakshmanan graduated as an engineer in geology from the École Nationale Supérieure de Géologie at Nancy in 1955. After experience at Electricité de France, he joined CPGF-Horizon in 1958 where he is now chairman and consults for the parent company, Simon-Horizon, Ltd. In 1988 he returned to Nancy University for a Ph.D. in gravity. He has widely published in engineering geophysics, resistivity inversion, seismic tomography, and gravity. He teaches engineering geophysics at Paris and Nancy Universities and at the Nancy School of Mines. He is a pioneer in microgravity surveying for caves. He organized a transfer of technology in migrogravity to the U.S. Corps of Engineers, and has also been involved in the detection of chambers inside the Cheops pyramid (Egypt) by microgravity.
