Bio


Céline Scheidt is a senior research engineer in the Department of Energy Resources Engineering at Stanford University. She has worked extensively in uncertainty quantification, sensitivity analysis, history matching and in the use of distance-based methods in reservoir modeling. She has authored 8 papers, co-authored 2 book chapters and 1 patent. She obtained her PhD at Strasbourg University and the IFP (France) in applied mathematics, with a focus on the use of experimental design and geostatistical methods to model response surfaces.
