Laura Valentina Socco is an associate professor in Applied Geophysics and Head of the Geophysics Lab at Politecnico di Torino (Technical University of Turin).

Dr Socco works on developing geophysical techniques for near surface investigation in applications ranging from, seismic hazard and engineering, to hydrocarbon exploration, environment and cultural heritage. In the last fifteen years, she has focused her research work on surveying techniques based on the propagation of seismic surface waves for the seismic and geotechnical site characterisation. More recently she has focused on geophysical data integration techniques.

Dr Socco is author of more than 110 scientific publications in peer reviewed journals and conferences. Personal impact factors h and g are equal to 18 and 33, respectively, with more than 1560 total citations (source Google Scholar). She has been member of Research Committee and Education Committee of EAGE and DL Committee of SEG and she has been vice-chairperson and chair-person of the Near Surface Division Committee of EAGE and member of EAGE Board (2014-16). She is Editor of “Geophysics” and she has been Assistent and Associate Editor of “Geophysics” and "Near Surface Geophysics".  She has been Convener of several international workshops.

In 2013 Dr Socco has been chosen as Honorary Lecturer by the SEG.
