Laurent White

laurent white portraitLaurent White obtained a diploma in Engineering Mathematics from Université catholique de Louvain (Belgium) in 2002 and, after completing a Master of Science at UT Austin in Environmental Engineering in 2003, he returned to Belgium to pursue a PhD in numerical ocean modeling using the finite-element method. In 2007, Mr. White took a postdoctoral assignment at NOAA’s Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Lab (GFDL) in Princeton, NJ, where he continued working on numerical ocean modeling, and helped develop algorithms for generalized vertical coordinate systems. In 2009, Mr. White joined ExxonMobil Research and Engineering’s Corporate Strategic Research Lab, where he has been working on various large-scale computational problems, including full-wavefield inversion and reservoir simulation. He currently leads the Computational Physics Section.
