Jaeggli, Christoph

PhD student


My resarch will focus on the development of efficient Monte Carlo (MC) methods based on Mulitple-Point Statistics (MPS) for solving inverse problems. The goals are to characterize geological reservoirs by accounting for all available information provided by direct or indirect observations, and to evaluate parameter uncertainty.

During my PhD, I will concentrate on the development of new sampling stategies for the proposal distribution in Markov chains by exploiting our MPS techniques together with sensitivities of the stat variables to the parameter field.
