Reginald Fessenden Award for Evert Slob
Evert Slob (Professor of Geophysical Electromagnetic Methods) has received a prestigious award from the Society of Exploration Geophysicists for his contribution to scientific and technological advances in the field of electromagnetic interferometry.
The Reginald Fessenden Award is given to a person who has made a specific technical contribution to exploration geophysics, such as an invention or a theoretical or conceptual advancement, which, in the opinion of the Honors and Awards Committee and the Board of Directors, merits special recognition. Below is the motivation of the Awards Committee:
Evert Slob has contributed key scientific and technological advances in electromagnetic interferometry in a series of papers from 2007 to 2013, although these papers represent only a small selection of his 120-plus publications. What is clear from this body of work is the power of Slob’s basic theoretical understanding and his ability to create entirely novel areas of theory and methodology that were previously beyond the reach of most in academia or industry. It is also noted that Slob devotes a significant portion of his scientific endeavors to support, engage, and mentor students and postdoctoral scientists.
