Isabelle Lecomte received an M.S. (1987), a Civ. Eng. (1988), and a Ph.D. (1990; IFREMER grant), all in geophysics and at the University of Strasbourg, France. She was post-doctoral fellow at NORSAR, Norway (grants from EU, 1991; Research Council of Norway, 1992), before joining as principal research geophysicist in R&D seismic modelling (1993-2016). She was guest researcher at the International Centre for Geohazards, a Norwegian Research Centre of Excellence (2003-2012) and adjunct Associate Professor at the University of Oslo (2012-2017). She is now Associate Professor in reservoir geophysics at the University of Bergen (2016-present), Department of Earth Science, in the “Basin and Reservoir Studies” research group. She is also visiting Associate Professor at NORSAR (2016-present). She received the 2001 EAGE Loránd Eötvös award and the 2014 Norwegian Geophysical award.
