Guillaume Caumon

Research interests

  • Geomodeling: model validity, meshing, construction and editing.
  • Uncertainty assessment and inverse problems
  • Volume visualization
  • Geostatistics and data analysis


Guillaume Caumon has a background in quantitative geosciences and computer programming. He holds a MSc degree (Diplome d'ingénieur and DEA) from the Nancy School of Geology (Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Géologie), an a PhD and Habilitation in Geosciences from INPL.

He was a postdoctoral scholar in at the Petroleum Engineering Dept. of Stanford University in 2003-2004. He was visiting professor at the Center for Wave Phenomena at Colorado School of Mines during spring and summer 2015.

He is currently the Nancy School of Geology Professor in Geomodeling at Université de Lorraine - GeoRessources, where he teaches theoretical and applied geomodeling, geostatistics, field work and C++ programming.
