Your Web-based Open Laboratory
The Genesis of YouWol
YouWol is based in France, and is the brain child of Dr. Frantz Maerten and Dr. Laurent Maerten.
They sought to create a development environment for scientists that helps to build innovative applications at a minimum cost, with little to no programming knowledge.
By bringing together the latest advances in cloud technology and graphics the YouWol Platform was created, a web-based integrated platform for everyone!
About YouWol Founders
Frantz and Laurent Maerten (1977)
YouWol’s founders, Dr. Frantz Maerten and Dr. Laurent Maerten, graduated from Montpellier University (France) and Stanford University (USA). They have previously founded the IGEOSS Company and have worked for Schlumberger for 9 years. They have been extensively involved in the development of numerical techniques and tools for evaluating and modelling geological structures in complex structural and stratigraphic environments.
Some of their innovative technologies include forward stress modeling around faults and salt bodies, as well as 2D/3D restoration tools. They are the inventors of Dynel2D and Dynel3D geomechanically-based restoration tools, as well as Poly3D/iBem3D and NFP forward deformation and stress modeling technique incorporating geomechanical stress inversion.
Between them they have amassed more than 15 patents and patent applications, they have presented at over 50 conferences, published over 30 peer reviewed papers, and completed over 40 comprehensive industry reports.
Today, they are fulfilling a wish to be more involved in R&D and create a lasting impact for scientists and engineers worldwide by developing the YouWol Platform.
