The Barney and Estelle Morris Professor of Earth Sciences, Emeritus
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy research aims to understand how faults and fractures initiate and evolve in Earth's brittle crust, how they affect the flow of molten rock, groundwater, and hydrocarbons, and the crucial role faults and fractures play in earthquake generation, folding of sedimentary strata, and volcanic eruption.
Ph.D. Student in Energy Resources Engineering
BioI am a fourth year PhD student in the department of Energy Resources Engineering. My research focuses on building reliable descriptions of hydrocarbon reservoirs by transcending disciplinary boundaries. My work on seismic imaging algorithms during my Bachelor’s and Master’s degree and the insights I have gleaned with about eight years of studying geosciences have led me to believe in the value of integrating geology, geophysics and reservoir engineering. A major facet of my research encompasses developing workflows and methodologies to build robust earth models by integrating constraints from basin modeling, rock physics and seismic imaging. My research is also aimed at developing stochastic inverse methods by incorporating principles from machine learning and signal processing.
