  • Petrophysics

My research interests in petrophysics are varied, but I especially enjoy focusing on creating new analytic methods and templates for evaluating carbonate and sandstone reservoirs. Pore structure and reservoir characterization are special interests. Current funded research involves ROZ and transition zones in both carbonate and sandstones and unconventional reservoirs.
