Best Innovators


Raphaël Lencrerot, Geophysicist

After graduating in Engineering from Centrale Marseille engineering school in 2005, Raphaël completed his PhD in Physics at Institut Fresnel, part of the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS).

He joined Total in 2008 as a computer science engineer, where his responsibilities included leading the Depth Imaging & Velocity Analysis (DIVA) Package project to develop the tools needed for PreStack Depth Migration (PSDM) using high performance computing. In 2013, he joined the Seismic Acquisition team as its geophysicist.

Involved in several feasibility studies, he also developed expertise in advanced full wave modeling techniques to define seismic acquisition parameters in complex areas. From 2016 to 2018, his research focused on seismic imaging tools, especially asymptotic methods.

His is currently the Project Leader for structural uncertainty studies, in charge of improving our proprietary Easy Alea software.
