Robin Dommisse is a senior geological modeling advisor at the Bureau of Economic Geology. He studied Geology at the Free University of Amsterdam and Petroleum Engineering at the University of Texas at Austin. His research interests include sequence stratigraphic interpretation, petrophysics, geological modeling, geostatistics, and reservoir simulation. He has spent his professional career in the energy industry in the fields of reservoir characterization and software design, performing over 50 integrated 3D reservoir modeling projects for both supermajor and independent oil & gas companies.

Present position: Research Scientist Associate, Bureau of Economic Geology, The University of Texas at Austin (March 2016 - present).
His areas of expertise include integrated 3D geocellular modeling, seismic interpretation, reservoir simulation, hydrocarbon reserves assessment, petrophysics, and sequence stratigraphic well log interpretation. At the Bureau, he has contributed to various industry associate programs and research groups, including RCRL, TORA, MSRL, Texnet, CISR, SUTUR, FRAC, and STARR.

Bethany Rysak (Supervisor)
I am a highly driven Master's student investigating hydraulic fracture morphology, propagation, and segmentation in shales. I work in partnership with the Bureau of Economic Geology as part of the Fracture Research and Application Consortium. My other interests include fracture spatial arrangement and the effects of diagenesis and mechanical stratigraphy on brittle structures. I have much experience in geologic field...
