"My plasma physics degree opened my horizons to include controlled fusion, cosmology and astrophysics."
I grew up in France, Tunisia and Algeria. I became interested in science and technology at the age of seven when I dismounted the mechanical clock of my parents. Much later, my plasma physics degree opened my horizons to include controlled fusion, cosmology and astrophysics.
Following a year of research work with the French Atomic Commission I joined Schlumberger in 1972. I have been a Field Engineer, Technical Manager, Line Manager, Marketing Manager, Interpretation Development Manager, Quality Manager, and now Quality Health Safety Environment Manager. I have worked in France, Sweden, Germany, Denmark, Norway, USA, Australia, Singapore, Taiwan, United Arab Emirates, Oman, Pakistan, Qatar, Yemen, Indonesia, India, Malaysia, Thailand, Nigeria, and Colombia.
I was recently elected President-elect of the Society of Professional Well Log Analysts. I am the author of the textbook Log Data Acquisition and Quality Control.
