Presently my research focuses on the matching of models to various classes of reservoir responses. These "inverse problems" seek the values of unknown resevoir parameters by inference rather than direct measurement. Typical problems are: tracer analysis of fractures, computer-aided well test analysis, production schedule optimization, automated history matching/decline analysis, etc.
I teach several different classes at Stanford, including:
I am involved in a number of different research groups in the Department of Energy Resources Engineering. Work in well test interpretation is usually carried out in the SUPRI-D Consortium on Innovation in Well Testing, while research in optimization problems often takes place in the SUPRI-B Consortium on Reservoir Simulation directed by Khalid Aziz. I also have a strong interest in Geothermal Energy, and this research is conducted under the auspices of the Stanford Geothermal Program.
