Best Paper Award for Evgeniia Martuganova

PhD-student Evgeniia Martuganova receives the Loránd Eötvös Award for Best Paper in Geophysical Prospecting at the 83rd EAGE Annual Conference.

Evgeniia Martuganova, PhD student in Section 2.2 Geophysical Imaging, was awarded this year’s Loránd Eötvös Award for Best Paper in the Journal Geophysical Prospecting. She received the prize on the occasion of the 83rd EAGE Annual Conference and Exhibition, held in Madrid in June 2022. The EAGE is the European Association for Geoscientists and Engineers and one of the leading global associations in that field.

The Loránd Eötvös Award is presented to the author(s) of the best paper published in Geophysical Prospecting in the calendar year preceding the award. The paper should be of high scientific standard and should represent a significant contribution or an outstanding tutorial in one or more of the disciplines in the EAGE.

Evgeniia Martuganova received the award for her paper „Cable reverberations during wireline distributed acoustic sensing measurements: their nature and methods for elimination“, published in the June 2021 edition of the journal Geophysical Prospecting. In this scientific publication she developed an efficient mechanism for eliminating noise in data generated from borehole seismic surveys using distributed acoustic sensors.

About the person:

Evgeniia Martuganova is a geophysicist with a great interest in seismic data processing. She obtained her bachelor and master degrees in Geology from the Lomonosov Moscow State University. Currently, she is finalising her PhD at Technical University Berlin, Germany. During her PhD research at GFZ, she focused on the application of vertical seismic profiling acquired using distributed acoustic sensing for the exploration of geothermal systems, for example at the geothermal facility in Groß Schönebeck. For her first post-doc position, she moved to TU Delft, where she now works on seismic data analysis for carbon-capturing storage applications. Before working in academia, she worked in an international oil & gas company and international service company and participated in scientific research cruises.
