Committee Members

Working on fractured reservoir characterization, including tight sandstone and fractured basement. I am also working on tight sandstone diagenesis and reservoir quality evaluation. Methods I use include petrography, SEM-CL, fluid inclusion micro thermometry, Image logs, and integrated statistics and machine learning techniques.

Current Research Projects

Fracture evolution and progressive diagenesis in low porosity rocks

Past Research Projects
