François Lavoué got his B.Sc. in Geosciences from the Ecole Normale Supérieure de Lyon (France) in 2008 and a M.Sc. in Geophysics from the Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris in 2010. He then graduated from University of Grenoble in 2014 with a PhD under the supervision of Profs S. Garambois and J. Virieux. In 2015, he visited Colorado School of Mines (USA) for a first postdoctoral project before joining the DIAS Geophysics Section in 2016, under the supervision of Prof. Sergei Lebedev. He is now a postdoctoral fellow at Univ. Grenoble Alpes, while still interacting with DIAS.

Research Interests

Geophysical quantitative imaging, waveform inversion, seismology, hydrogeophysics.

François’ research concerns the quantitative imaging of the Earth’s subsurface, using in particular seismic and electromagnetic waveforms inversions, with applications at various scales: from the shallow subsurface (hydrogeophysics) to basin and upper mantle imaging (seismology).

Keywords: geophysical inverse problems, quantitative imaging, full waveform inversion, numerical modelling and optimisation, computational seismology and electromagnetics.
