BSc. (Hons) in Information Technology. I'm also a Geophysical Engineer and MSc in Petroleum Geoscience with strong mathematical, problem-solving, and analytical skills. I'm currently particularly interested in Data Analytics and Software Development.

Proficient in multiple programming languages, including Python, Java, JavaScript, SQL, and R. I have a huge interest in Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing. I've been recently working in areas such as Text classification and Sentiment Analysis. I have solid knowledge in several ML algorithms (Naive Bayes, Decision Trees, K-Nearest Neighbour) and in Time Series Analysis. I have experience working with Python (Pandas, NLPTK, Scikit-learn, SciPy, Plotly, TextBlob, Vader Sentiment), R, and RapidMiner.

Solid academic experience in Object-oriented programming and Web Development. I have developed several projects using Java, React, Node.js (Express.js), and Dash.

I also have advanced experience with the most popular flavors of Linux (including Shell Scripting) and excellent academic experience in Relational database (SQL, MySQL, PostgreSQL) and cloud computing (AWS and Google Cloud).

Click here to see some examples of my work in Seismic modelling.

  • As a Research Geophysicist, I was responsible for performing a set of signal analysis (seismic processing) tasks and ensuring the correct integration and implementation of geophysical applications into a computer cluster platform. This platform was being designed in order to facilitate task scheduling and run computation-intensive tasks on clusters. One of my main activities was shell script programming for Seismic Modeling and Processing.

  • My responsibilities include:
  • Shell script / MATLAB programming for signal analysis (seismic data processing and modeling).
  • Simulations of seismic waves propagation: Wavefront and ray tracing.
  • Generation of pre-stacked synthetic seismic data using wave propagation theories (raytracing and finite difference methods).

Simón Bolívar University, Venezuela

Academic Assistant - Earth Sciences Department

  • As a Academic Assistant, I was in charge of collaborating with the lecture by teaching some modules of the Geophysical Engineering program at Simón Bolívar University. I was usually in charge of a group between 20 and 30 students during theoretical and practical activities.

  • This experience has contributed to my professional development in two major areas:
  • By teaching modules, I have solidified many technical geophysical knowledge.
  • I have also developed communication and presentation skills, as well as the leadership strategies needed to manage a group of students and to transfer knowledge effectively.

  • Courses taught:
  • Seismic data processing: Concepts of discrete signal analysis, sampling, aliasing and discrete Fourier transform. Conventional seismic data processing sequence.
  • Seismic methods: The convolutional model of the seismic trace. Propagation and attenuation of seismic waves. Interpretation of seismic sections.
  • Seismic reservoir characterization: Relations between the acoustic impedance and the petrophysical parameters. Well-Seismic Ties. Seismic inversion and AVO.

Simón Bolívar University, Venezuela

Geophysical Engineer

  • Bachelor thesis project: Basic modelling of pre-stacked seismic data and its corresponding processing sequence, using Seismic Unix package.

Geophysics is a discipline that uses different areas of knowledge, such as physics, mathematics, and geology to study the internal constitution and history of the Earth.

The Geophysical engineering career at Simón Bolívar University is based on:

  • A training in seismic exploration methods (acquisition, processing, inversion, and interpretation) and its direct application to the oil industry.
  • The program also includes a basic training in gravimetric, magnetic and electrical exploration methods
  • Some courses in geology.

But the career is oriented towards oil exploration because Venezuela is an oil-producing country.

La Ingeniería Geofísica aplica distintas áreas del conocimiento tales como la Física, las Matemáticas y la Geología, al estudio de la constitución interna e historia de la Tierra.

La formación del Ingeniero Geofísico en la Universidad Simón Bolívar se cimenta en:

  • Una preparación en métodos de exploración sísmica (adquisición, procesamiento, inversión e interpretación) y sus aplicaciones directas a la industria petrolera.
  • Una preparación básica en métodos de exploración gravimétrica, magnética, y eléctrica
  • Una cadena de cursos en Geología que sirven al futuro ingeniero en sus labores de interprete y geointegrador.

Ejemplos de aplicaciones de la Ingeniería Geofísica:

  • En la exploración petrolera, los métodos de prospección sísmica permiten detectar las trampas que sirven de receptáculos a los hidrocarburos a profundidades que por otras vías sería imposible determinar.
  • En la exploración minera los métodos gravimétricos y magnéticos permiten la evaluación del suelo y del subsuelo con el fin de ubicar y/o descubrir, ampliar y redefinir yacimientos minerales que no son visibles en superficie, además de que por estas mismas vías es posible establecer zonas de recursos minerales económicamente explotables.
  • En la Ingeniería Civil la Geofísica permite estudiar las condiciones del subsuelo para el emplazamiento de obras de envergadura (presas, viaductos, edificios, carreteras etc.) y en la Agronomía permite definir posibles acuíferos utilizables ya sea para riego o para consumo humano.
