Shray joined Ternan in 2023 as a Geoscientist with a strong background in geology and geophysics. He completed his Bachelor's degree in Petroleum Geology in 2011, and spent two years conducting geophysical exploration for gold and silver in the Indonesian forests using electromagnetic methods. This practical experience sparked his passion for geology and inspired him to pursue a Master's degree in Marine Geology in Germany, influenced by Frank Schätzing's novel "The Swarm." During his studies, Shray became fascinated with submarine landslides due to the large sizes and volumes associated with these events. This led him to pursue a Ph.D., focusing on studying some of the largest landslides in the Mediterranean.
Driven by his curiosity and recognizing the growth in offshore renewables, Shray decided to explore new opportunities in this field. For the past eight years, he has been interpreting various types of data, including multi-beam bathymetry, side-scan sonar, backscatter, sub-bottom profiler, and 2D/3D multichannel seismic data for scientific research and renewable projects worldwide. He also has a good understanding of seabed features and sediments, as well as their physical and geomechanical properties.
In his free time, Shray enjoys watching documentaries on a wide range of topics, including space, current affairs, and anything that piques his interest. He aspires to resume his passion for running, which was temporarily interrupted due to living in a busy city. He also enjoys tending to plants and experimenting with new recipes in the kitchen.
