Chris has taken a new role as a Data Scientist at Chevron! We look forward to continued great things from Chris in this new phase of his career. All the best Chris from everyone at OGS!

Christopher Chalcraft has a B.Sc. from McGill University in Physics & Geophysics. After working for three years for CGGVeritas doing seismic data processing, he has returned to the University of Calgary to complete an M.Sc. in Geophysics (in progress) focussing primarily on reservoir characterization and signal analysis.

He has a varied background starting out in a research lab at McGill University studying gas hydrates gaining experience in forward modelling and AVO. His experience with CGGVeritas was both in the office working in the depth imaging group, as well as doing processing and QC onboard a seismic acquisition vessel based in SE Asia.
