Work Experience Summary

Dr. Ross is currently president of Cross QI, a quantitative interpretation consulting service company involved with leading-edge, applied and integrated geophysical interpretation and analysis techniques for exploration and development. He has managed, led, and worked as a team member for contractors and oil and gas companies. His focus areas are, but not limited to, predictive analytics of production metrics for unconventional resources, seismic attributes, AVO modeling and analysis, acoustic impedance and simultaneous inversion, multi-attribute (neural network) inversion, azimuthal anisotropy and fracture detection, VSP, time-lapse (4D) monitoring, seismic overpressure prediction and geostatistical projects, which have routinely improved drilling success rates, reduced risk, and improved financial positions.

Dr. Ross' well-rounded processing and interpretation skills, coupled with a pragmatic problem-solving style in geoscience and associated disciplines has given him acute insight into effective selection of appropriate applied technologies with integrated and contemporary geoscience and engineering practices.
