Johan Robertsson’s main research interest is the physics of wave propagation in complex media, the modelling and inversion of seismic data, seismic data acquisition and processing for exploration and environmental geophysics applications.

Curriculum Vitae

Johan O. A. Robertsson has been a Professor of Applied Geophysics and Head of the Exploration and Environmental Geophysics (EEG) Group at the Institute of Geophysics in the Department of Earth Sciences since 2012.

He was born in Lund, Sweden, in 1967.

He completed an MSc in engineering physics at Uppsala University, Sweden, in 1991, and continued his studies at Rice University, Houston, TX, USA, where he was awarded a PhD in Geophysics in 1994.

He then moved to ETH Zurich to take up a position as a postdoctoral research fellow at the Institute of Geophysics from 1995 to 1996.

In 1996 he joined Schlumberger where he spent 15 years in various R&D and management positions, including Research Director of Geophysics and Scientific Advisor at Schlumberger Gould Research, Cambridge. Part of his research led to Schlumberger’s largest R&D project ever, fundamentally changing the way marine seismic wavefields are sampled.
