Zeno Heilmann received a master's degree in Geophysics from the University of Karlsruhe, Germany, in 2002. From 2002, he did a PhD under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Peter Hubral. During this time, he was employed as a research associate of the WIT Consortium. He took part in the development of a CRS-stack-based time-to-depth imaging workflow and was responsible for its application in a publicly funded geothermal energy project. Besides this, he worked on an extension of the CRS stack software for rugged topography and variable near-surface velocity. In 2007, he received the Doctorate degree from the Physical Faculty of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), awarded magna cum laude. After a short period as post-doc, he started in September 2007 a position as researcher in the Imaging & Numerical Geophysics Group of CRS4. From 2007 to 2014, he took part in an industrial project, working on innovative seismic imaging methods, coherent noise removal and full waveform inversion. From 2008 to 2011, he was also engaged in a publicly funded project developing a multidisciplinary grid-infrastructure for geoscience. In 2014, he joined the newly founded Environmental Near-Surface Geoscience Group. From 2015 to 2017, he was working in the publicly financed SmartGeo project, developing a cloud portal for seismic data-processing. From 2017 to 2021, he applied geoelectrical methods in two publicly funded projects targeting environmental geophysics and precision agriculture. From 2021 to 2023, he took part in an industrial project aiming at designing a production facility for green hydrogen and in an internal project aiming at developing an IoT platform for intelligent solar charging of electric cars. Since 2023, he collaborates in a project using satellite, drone and ground resistivity data for archaeological research.
