Johannes is an exploration geophysicist at Cimarex Energy and vice-chair of EPIC. At Cimarex, he currently works on the Anadarko Exploration Team focusing on further developing formations in Oklahoma. He completed both his undergraduate and graduate degrees in geophysics at Colorado School of Mines.
