Anatoly A

- Research Program Mentor

PhD candidate at Stanford University


Geology, Geophysics, Machine Learning, Earth Sciences


I spent ~ 15 years in subsurface exploration including 12 years in energy companies. I am really excited about Earth, Energy and Environmental problems. If you look at everything what surrounds you: cars, roads, food, glass, metal, toys, electricity; all of that is a unique combination of complex Earth processes and human's mind. The civilization in its current state is a symbiotic function of humanity and Earth.
