Hugh Geiger is a consulting geophysicist specializing in seismic imaging and quantitative interpretation. He obtained his BSc and MSc in Engineering Geology from Queen’s, and PhD in Geophysics from UofC, where he transitioned from crustal imaging with Lithoprobe to research in time and depth algorithms with CREWES and POTSI. While at UofC, Hugh received both the PhD Teaching and PhD Research awards, 5 best paper/poster awards with the SEG, CSEG and CGU and was the MITACs postdoc in Inversion. He then spent a year in Pau France with Total developing advanced seismic depth imaging algorithms before returning to Calgary to work for Talisman Energy.

As Senior Explorationist Geophysics with the Global Exploration Specialist Team at Talisman, Hugh was responsible for seismic acquisition design, processing QC, depth imaging and potential fields methods in Peru, Columbia, Kurdistan, Papua New Guinea, as well as conventional and unconventional projects in North America. He then joined Sproule International as Senior Geophysical Specialist, where he worked on integrated interpretation for reserve and resource estimation in the WCSB, East Coast Canada, US, North Sea, Kenya, Madagascar, Cabinda, and Australia.
