Research Interests

​Combine diverse type of data from geology, geophysics and drilling reports into one single representative geographic information system. Afterwards, harness this system to predict a 3D characteristic reservoir model such as pore pressures and fracture gradients with respect to depth. Also, develop a systematic model of reservoir overburden. These models aid drilling engineering in well construction and planning.
