Personal profile


Victorien Paumard is currently a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Centre for Energy Geoscience, University of Western Australia, specializing on the characterization of siliciclastic and carbonate systems with seismic stratigraphy/geomorphology. He graduated with a BSc in Geology and a MSc in Petroleum Geology from the UniLaSalle University in France; and with a PhD in Basin Analysis and Seismic Stratigraphy from the University of Western Australia. His MSc research (supported by Total E&P) focused on the seismic stratigraphy of Oligocene-Miocene carbonate platforms (Myanmar); and his PhD research (supported by Chevon) focused on the quantitative characterization of sediment transfer across shelf margins using 3D seismic data (NWS Australia). He is now a principal investigator for the Quantitative Seismic Stratigraphy (QSS) research consortium at UWA. His research interests are focused on the development of quantitative methods to build 3D seismic and sequence stratigraphic frameworks to better understand the controls on the architecture of sedimentary margins and reservoir development. Victorien is a member of AAPG, ASEG, ASF, GSA (America), GSA (Australia), IAS, PESA, SEPM and SPE.
