Warren S. Ross received a B.Sc. (1975) in ocean engineering, an M.Sc. (1977), and a Ph.D. (1980) in electrical engineering, all from Massachusetts Institute of Technology. In 1980, he joined what is now ExxonMobil Upstream Research Co. in Houston, Texas, where he is now team leader of the signal, multiples, and regularization technology group in the subsurface imaging division. Ross has researched seismic modeling, vertical seismic profiling, seismic amplitudes, well-seismic ties, velocity analysis, and 3D multiple suppression. He is coinventor of the acoustic blanket, a method of mechanically suppressing multiples during field acquisition. Ross is on the editorial board of the Journal of Seismic Exploration. He is a member of SEG and IEEE.
