Modern Quantitative Seismic Interpretation (QSI) requires a simultaneous analysis of many datasets. Emerson E&P Software’s interactive platform makes these workflows available to the innovative interpreter in an easy-to-use way. Seismic, impedance, and various other attributes are analyzed simultaneously, as they are being integrated with well data and Rock Physics models.  The multi-data approach which involves, e.g., multi-data view, multi-attribute well ties, multi-attribute model perturbations, and/or multi-attribute crossplots, provides a holistic view of the various aspects of the subsurface and the reservoir.

Previously, Dr. Canning worked at the Houston Advanced Research Center (HARC) as a senior research scientist, and at the Institute for Petroleum Research and Geophysics (IPRG) as a senior geophysicist. She has also served as a Lecturer at leading technical universities worldwide.

Dr. Canning has delivered papers and presentations at many international scientific conferences, and has authored numerous technical articles.  She holds a Ph.D. in Geophysics from Rice University in Houston, Texas.
