Lucy MacGregor  A leading researcher in multi-physics analysis with expertise in integrating electromagnetic methods into reservoir characterization workflows. She served as SEG Honorary Lecturer in Europe in 2011 and as Distinguished Lecturer in 2021.


Lucy has a 1st class degree in Natural Sciences (Physics), and a Ph.D. from the University of Cambridge for research in the field of controlled-source electromagnetic (CSEM) methods and over 25 years of experience in marine EM surveying and its application to the detection and characterization of fluids in the earth. Following her Ph.D., she was a Green Scholar at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, working on marine electromagnetic methods, before returning to Cambridge as a Leverhulme Trust/Downing College research fellow.
In 2000, she moved to the National Oceanography Centre, Southampton, as a NERC research fellow to continue her work, and she took part in the first survey targeting CSEM at hydrocarbon reservoirs. In 2002, Lucy co-founded OHM and joined the company as CTO. She remained with the company through its merger with Rock Solid Images (RSI) until December 2018. She led RSI's technical group, specializing in rock physics-driven quantitative reservoir characterization and multi-physics analysis. Lucy co-founded Edinburgh Geoscience Advisors in 2019 and worked on a range of projects, including multiphysics QI projects for reservoir appraisal in Asia and the Americas in collaboration with PGS and ultra-high resolution AUV-based magnetics and CSEM for mineral mapping, contaminant mapping, and infrastructure inspection with Ocean Floor Geophysics (OFG), serving as  OFG's CTO.     

Lucy joined Petronas in March 2023 as a specialist in quantitative interpretation.

Peter Kowalczyk - A world expert in the geophysical mapping and characterization of seafloor minerals. Peter spearheaded the development of multiple geophysical sensors routinely deployed from AUV and ROV platforms. Peter is a member of the BC Society of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists.  


Peter graduated from the University of British Columbia with a B.Sc. (geophysics) in 1970. After many years of working as an exploration geophysicist, Peter founded Ocean Floor Geophysics (OFG). He has a background in mining geophysics and extensive experience in mineral exploration worldwide. Before forming OFG, he was chief geophysicist at the mining company Placer Dome. Peter has a strong background in electrical, magnetic, and electromagnetic potential field methods used in mineral exploration and the economic evaluation of mineral deposits. He designed the electromagnetic system OFG built to map the Solwara SMS deposit, which has been used on multiple SMS exploration cruises in the western Pacific and Japan since then.
