Current Research and Scholarly Interests
Laura is a PhD candidate at Stanford University. Her research focuses on understanding fluid transport in shale by imaging, reconstructing and analyzing the rock fabric at nanometer scales. Her interests range from oil & gas engineering, fluid flow in porous media, to environmental and regulatory issues in the oil & gas industry, CCUS, and energy policy.
