Biography 2014 (for SEG Board member, District 2) [1]

Sue Minkoff is a professor of mathematical sciences and an affiliated professor in the Department of Geosciences at the University of Texas at Dallas. Her research interests include geoscience modeling and photonics. She received her PhD in computational and applied mathematics from Rice University in 1995. From 1995 to 1997, she was an NSF-Industrial postdoc at the University of Texas at Austin and British Petroleum, and from 1997 to 2000 she held a von Neumann Fellowship in the Mathematics Department at Sandia National Laboratories in Albuquerque, New Mexico. In 2000 she was promoted to senior member of the Technical Staff in the Geophysics Department at Sandia. From 2000 to 2012 she served on the faculty in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County.

Biography 2004 [2]

Sue Minkoff received a B.S. (1986) in mathematics and computer science from Duke University and a Ph.D. (1995) in computational and applied mathematics from Rice University. Her Ph.D. thesis focuses on estimation of the energy source and earth parameters via seismic inversion. From 1995 to 1997, she was a National Science Foundation industrial postdoc (funded by NSF and British Petroleum) at the University of Texas at Austin, where she worked on upscaling algorithms for fluid flow. From 1997 to 2000, Minkoff was employed at Sandia National Laboratories, first in the mathematics department as a von Neumann fellow and later in the geophysics department as a senior member of the technical staff. In 2000, she moved to the mathematics department at the University of Maryland-Baltimore County, where she is an assistant professor. Minkoff's interests include numerical modeling and algorithm development for wave propagatio9n and inversion, fluid flow, and mechanical deformation as well as the coupling among these different types of physics. She is also involved in numerical modeling for fiber-optic communication and biology.


Honorable Mention (Geophysics) 2004

Susan E. Minkoff, Charles Mike Stone, Steven L.Bryant, and Malgorzata Peszynska received 2004 Honorable Mention (Geophysics) for their paper Coupled geomechanics and flow simulation for time-lapse seismic modeling.[3]
