I am interested in characterizing the reservoir properties of unconventional gas shales using rock physics modeling, seismic inversion, and statistical methods. I use well log data and core data to calibrate rock physics models at well locations, and apply these rock physics models to seismic scale to obtain continuous distributions of the reservoir properties for gas shales.
