Anton Ziegon graduated from our Joint Master program in Applied Geophysics last year and has now been recognized as “Graduate of the year” for his outstanding academic performance between 2021-2023. In addition, Anton has been selected for the Dean’s List of RWTH Aachen University being among the top five percent of students in the program. But most importantly, he is, and forever will be, the first official GIM graduate! 😉

Anton Ziegon’s excellent M.Sc. work titled “Minimum entropy constraints for 3D structurally-coupled joint inversion of near-surface geophysical data acquired at the Rockeskyller Kopf, Germany” is currently under review in the Journal of Applied Geophysics and will also be presented at the upcoming General Assembly of the European Geosciences Union in Vienna (April 14-19, 2024). Anton has continued his academic career with a PhD at the University of Calgary and we wish him nothing but the best for his personal and certainly bright professional future!
