Biography 2013 
Colin Sayers received a B.A. in physics from the University of Lancaster, U. K., and a D.I.C. in mathematical physics and a Ph.D. in physics from Imperial College, London, U. K. He joined Shell’s Exploration and Production Laboratory in The Netherlands in 1986, moving to Schlumberger in 1991. He is a scientific adviser with Schlumberger, working on seismic solutions for unconventional resources. He is on SEG’s Research Committee and is a member of the editorial board of Geophysical Prospecting and the International Journal of Rock Mechanics and Mining Science. In 2010 he presented the SEG/EAGE Distinguished Instructor Short Course and was chair of the editorial board of The Leading Edge. His research interests include unconventional resources, seismic solutions, rock physics, pore pressure prediction, reservoir geomechanics, time-lapse seismic, a nalysis of production-induced reservoir stress changes, subsidence, fault reactivation, 3D mechanical earth modeling, fractured reservoir characterization, AVAZ, borehole/seismic integration, stress-dependent acoustics, and advanced sonic logging. He is a member of SEG, AGU, EAGE, SPE, and SPWL.
