Benoit Couet (Schlumberger-Doll Research)
This talk will first give some background on Schlumberger, a large company with a relatively low profile. It will show why science and technology is critical for our industry and provide some topics of interest for applied mathematicians in that context. A specific problem will be presented in more detail to illustrate the need for mathematicians. Finally, we will conclude with an emphasis on what makes a good scientist/mathematician within our organization with some suggestions for potential candidates who may consider working in our industry.
