Laura Valentina Socco
Laura Valentina Socco is an assistant professor in Applied Geophysics and vice-director of the Doctorate School of the Politecnico di Torino (Technical University of Turin). She is the principal investigator for many research projects financed by national and international institutions. Her research work is focused on near-surface problems with particular attention to surface-wave methods. She is the author of about 80 scientific publications, is a member of EAGE Research Committee and Educational Committee, and is an associate editor of Geophysics and Near Surface Geophysics.
