Clayton launched the Centre for Computational Geostatistics (CCG) when he returned to the University of Alberta in 1998. Prior to 1998, Clayton worked in industry for six years, earned a doctorate in geostatistics from Stanford in 1992, a masters in geostatistics from Stanford in 1987 and a bachelors in engineering from the University of Alberta in 1985. He has published eight books and over 200 research papers. He holds the Alberta Chamber of Resources Industry Chair in Mining Engineering and the Canada Research Chair in Natural Resources Uncertainty Characterization.
Dr. Jeff Boisvert
Jeff is an assistant professor in the School of Mining and Petroleum Engineering at the University of Alberta and currently acts as co-director of the CCG. After completing his undergraduate degrees in Mining Engineering and Education, Jeff obtained his masters in 2007 and his doctorate in 2010, both from the University of Alberta with a focus on geostatistics. With a passion for teaching, becoming an assistant professor at the University of Alberta in 2010 was indeed an exciting chance to explore advanced educational opportunities. Research in all areas geostatistical is the main focus, Jeff currently has over 40 publications.
