Students & Postdoctoral Fellows

The SDI Thesis and Dissertation page lists current student research topics as well as past graduate student and postdoctoral fellow projects and where students and postdoctoral fellows went after their time in the program.

Program Support

Our research on structural diagenesis is supported by Chemical Sciences, Geosciences and Biosciences Division, Office of Basic Energy Sciences, Office of Science, U.S. Department of Energy and by the JSG Structural Diagenesis Initiative of the Geology Foundation, John A. and Katherine G. Jackson School of Geosciences.

Research on all aspects of subsurface fractures is supported by Industrial Associates of the Fracture Research and Application Consortium and by Jackson Research Fellowships and private foundations.

If you would like to support the program, contact Steve Laubach.
