Biography 2004 [1]


Tijmen Jan Moser attended the University of Utrecht, Netherlands, where he received a M.Sc. in geophysics in 1987 and a Ph.D. in geophysics in 1992.

His research interests include seismic inversion, imaging, ray theory, asymptotic methods, seismic reservoir characterization and diffractions.


Moser has worked as a geophysical consultant for a number of companies and institutes including Amoco in Tulsa, Oklahoma (1992); IFP in France (1992-1994); IFJF in Bergen, Norway (1994-1995); Alexander-von-Humboldt Stipendiat in Karlsruhe, Germany (1996-1997); Norsk Hydro in Bergen, Norway (1997-2001); and the Geophysical Institute of Israel. Since 2001, Moser has been a geophysical consultant at Fugro-Jason in Rotterdam, Netherlands.

Moser is co-editor of the SEG reprint volume on Diffractions (in preparation). He is Editor-in-Chief of Geophysical Prospecting and is serving on SEG's Geoscientists Without Borders and EAGE's Oil, Gas and Geoscience Division Committee. He is a member of SEG and MAA, and honorary member of EAGE.

Honors and Awards

Moser has authored many influential papers on ray theory and ray methods, born inversion and modeling, macro-model independent imaging, and diffraction imaging, several of which have received Best Paper awards.

He has co-chaired special sessions devoted to diffractions at the EAGE conference in 2010, 2011, and 2012, as well as the workshop on seismic diffraction methods for fault and fracture detection at the SEG conference in 2012. He also co-presented the EAGE short course on seismic diffraction in 2011.
