Emmanuel T. Schnetzler

Emmanuel “Manu” is a geoscientist and subject matter expert in predictive analytics and geostatistics. 

After undergraduate studies in mathematics and physics in his hometown of Strasbourg, France, Manu was accepted at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Géologie where he developed a strong interest in computers and programming. This led him to an opportunity to practically apply computer geology as part of the original team developing the reservoir modeling software Gocad.

Early in his career Manu interned at Elf Aquitaine (now Total) in the area of geostatistics.  He continued his studies in this specialization at Stanford University where he obtained his Master’s degree.  

Since then Manu has worked for Odin (now Roxar) in Norway and has consulted with a variety of oil & gas and mining companies including Shell, Statoil, Chevron, ExxonMobil, BHP Billiton, and Neos in the United States.  At the same time, he co-founded Statios to develop and commercialize geostatistical software.
