Julia is a Research Scientist in the Energy Geoscience Division. Her research is focused in developing an intelligent seismic monitoring array for carbon capture and storage projects. She focuses on the use of fiber-optics sensing DAS and permanent surface orbital vibrators (SOV) for developing an alternative cost-effective monitoring system. Julia is involved in the optimization of acquisition and processing flows for DAS/SOV data, as well as in the development of new fiber-optic cable designs. Currently, Julia works on the Otway Project in Australia as part of the CCSMR project, the IMS project as part of the ADM ICCS project, and the Eagle Ford Shale Laboratory.
Julia received her PhD in Exploration Geophysics from Curtin University, Australia. Her research focused on using distributed acoustic sensing (DAS) for seismic imaging and monitoring applied to carbon capture and storage projects. Before starting her doctorate studies, Julia worked as a Field Geophysicist with seismic acquisition and processing in projects offshore Ivory Coast, Equatorial Guinea, and Egypt. Julia received her BSc in Geophysics from Fluminense Federal University, Brazil.
