José M. Carcione

José M. Carcione was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. He received the degree "Licenciado in Ciencias Físicas" from Buenos Aires University in 1978, the degree "Dottore in Fisica" from Milan University in 1984 and the Ph.D. in Geophysics from Tel-Aviv University in 1987. This year he was awarded the Alexander von Humboldt scholarship for a position at the Geophysical Institute of Hamburg University, where he stayed from 1987 to 1989. From 1978 to 1980 he worked at the "Comisión Nacional de Energía Atómica" at Buenos Aires. From 1981 to 1987 he was a research geophysicist at "Yacimientos Petrolíferos Fiscales", the national oil company of Argentina. Presently, he is a senior geophysicist at the "Istituto Nazionale di Oceanografia e di Geofisica Sperimentale (OGS)" (former "Osservatorio Geofisico Sperimentale") in Trieste. His current research deals with numerical modeling, the theory of wave propagation in acoustic and electromagnetic media, and their application to geophysics. He received the 2007 Anstey award at the EAGE in London and the 2017 EAGE Conrad Schlumberger award in Paris.
