Evren obtained his Bachelor’s in Earth and Environmental Science from the University of Orléans in 2011 and his Master’s in Mining Geology from OSUC (Observatoire des Sciences de l’Univers en Région Centre) in 2013.

His thesis at the Bureau des Recherches Géologiques et Minières (French Geological Survey) involved the complete development of a new predictivity method based on the link between lithological associations and mineral occurrences called CBA (Cell Based Associations). The objective is to offer a viable alternative to usual predictivity methods (WofE, FL, NN) using Multivariate Classification Analysis techniques (mainly Hierarchical Ascendant Clustering).

He joined the CET in 2014 as a PhD student under Mark Jessel and Mark Lindsay to work on 3D geological modeling at a fundamental level. The PhD focuses on assessing uncertainties in 3D geological modeling by simulating a large number of possible outcomes based on a single starting data set. The aim is to provide more reliable 3D modeling solutions to geoscientists by producing Bayesian probabilistic models instead of deterministic ones.

Evren’s research interests and skills range from applied (geo)statistics to GIS, geological 3D modeling, spatial analysis, mining predictivity and coding.
