Anil Kumar

Anil has completed his Integrated M.Tech in Geophysical Technology from IIT Roorkee from 2008-13. Post that he has completed his M.Tech in Petroleum Geoscience from IIT Bombay from 2013-15. During his graduation he had developed several models in the area of near-surface Geophysics using Surface Wave data. He has had experience handling Petrophysical and Well-log data. He developed an interest in research while working for his two dissertations, where he found; few of the non-exhaustive difficulties like uncertainty, over-determination, noise and non-uniqueness were always inherent in the modelling processes. This led him to look for techniques in data-driven modeling. Hence he decided to work with Dr. K.H. Singh (Main supervisor) and Dr. T.N. Singh (Co-supervisor) from IIT Bombay and Dr. Grace Rumantir (Main supervisor) from Monash University on the topic titled “Gaussian Process Driven Modelling and Prediction in Earth-Type Systems”. He enjoys building statistical models and implement hybrid optimization tools for delineating the cause of the observed data. As the data in Earth-Type Systems is majorly gathered after the cause has already occurred, he shall also try to analyze the data in an inferential framework.
Apart from this he also plays bullet chess.
