Research Interests
My primary research interest is to understand the underlying geochemical and physical processes relating to the successful storage of CO2 in depleted oil reservoirs.

Education & Background
M.S. Geology (2013) – Boston College. MS thesis focused on groundwater contamination from road salt in a public water supply well-field. Several hundred water samples were analyzed with IC and ICP in order to understand the hydrogeochemical processes relating road salt transport and fate.

Engineers in Action (La Paz, Bolivia 2010 – 2011) Volunteered on water and sanitation projects for rural Bolivians.

Royal Dutch Shell – Petrophysical Engineer (2008 – 2010) Worked on deepwater GoM well estimating pore pressure, analyzing well logs, and designing logging operations.

B.S. Petroleum Engineering (2008) – Louisiana State University

Current Projects

I am working Dr. Susan Hovorka and Dr. Michael Young as a PhD aspirant on the role of methane in meeting energy demand, influencing climate change, and improving CO2 storage.
