Partha S. Routh obtained a B.Sc. with honors (1991) and an M.S. in exploration geophysics (1993) from the Indian Institute of Technology, in Kharagpur, and a Ph.D. (1999) from the University of British Columbia (UBC), Canada, with a focus on electromagnetic inversion problems. After a postdoctoral position at UBC–Geophysical Inversion Facility, he joined Conoco Upstream Technology in Oklahoma.
From 2003 through 2007, he was on the geophysics faculty at Boise State University in Idaho. He is now with the seismic technology development research group at ConocoPhillips in Houston, Texas. Routh’s interests are in inverse problems and appraisal analysis applied to a variety of geophysical data. He is active in seismic imaging/inversion, time-lapse, near-surface geophysics, and multiscale inversion. He is an associate editor of Geophysical Prospecting and is an active member of SEG, SPE, EAGE, AGU, and SIAM.
