Current research and/or projects

My current research area examines way to lower water use and greenhouse gas emissions associated with oil and gas development.  My primary projects examines the interaction of captured and re-injected gases with oil and gas reservoirs.  I am also working on methods to seal leaky wellbores and detection of greenhouse gases near wells.  Through these research projects I work with collaborators from industry, governments and academia to improve the petrophysical characterization of subsurface fluids and rocks to improve the understanding of fluid flow in the subsurface. 

Professional activities / interests

Improved petrophysical characterization techniques

Characterizing fluid movement and transport pathways
