Koen Vogel is a retired Petroleum Industry geologist, who has been active in both exploration and development.
Vogel received his Ph.D. in Geology from The Pennsylvania State University in 1991, where he used numerical models to simulate river sedimentation.
Between 1991-2016 Vogel worked for Shell in a number of geology, IT, and mid-managerial roles. During this time, he developed significant technical expertise in numerical modeling and geostatistics, but also “soft” expertise in project management and review.
Since his retirement Vogel has been pursuing some intellectual interests that he developed as an undergrad, mainly in the geothermal and geomagnetic fields. Recently these interests converged with critical reviews of the IPCC report in general, and the causes of climate change in particular.
