Dr Per Avseth is a co-founder and consulting geophysicist at G&G Resources in Oslo, Norway. He is an adjunct professor of reservoir geophysics at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) in Trondheim, Norway. Per received his M.Sc. in Applied Petroleum Geosciences from NTNU in 1993, and his Ph.D. in Geophysics from Stanford University, California, in 2000. Per worked as a research geophysicist at Norsk Hydro in Bergen, 2001-2006, as a consultant geophysicist at Odin Petroleum in Bergen, 2006-2012, and as a geophysical advisor at Spring Energy/Tullow Oil in Oslo, 2012-2016. Per’s research interests include applied rock physics and AVO analysis, for quantitative seismic exploration and reservoir characterization. He is a co-author of the book "Quantitative Seismic Interpretation - Applying Rock Physics Tools to Reduce Interpretation Risk" published by Cambridge University Press (2005), and he served as the SEG Honorary Lecturer for Europe in 2009. He is also a course instructor in Rock Physics for EAGE.
