Featured Geology & Geophysics Seminar: Dr. Ursula Hammes
Mar 22, 2017
Dr. Hammes is our featured seminar this Friday, March 24th and will be presenting on "Recent mudrocks of the Cariaco Basin: Analog for shale oil/gas unconventional reservoirs" at 11:30 am in Halbouty room 101. Refreshments and coffee will be served.
Dr. Ursula Hammes is the current Halbouty visiting chair for the Department of Geology and Geophysics, teaching the special topics graduate course Geofluids and Mudrock Characterization.
Hammes graduated with her Diploma in Geology from the University of Erlangen in Germany in 1987 and her PhD from the University of Colorado at Boulder in 1992. She spent ten years as a consultant, performing postdoctoral research at the Bureau of Economic Geology, and as an exploration geologist in the petroleum industry. Hammes joined the Bureau of Economic Geology in 2001 as a Research Associate. Her main research focus is in clastic and carbonate sequence stratigraphy, depositional systems, and carbonate and clastic diagenesis. Her recent research is in shale-gas/oil systems specializing in basin to nano-scale characterization of shale basins.
Dr. Hammes will present her talk this Friday, March 24th at 11:30am in Halbouty room 101 on "Recent mudrocks of the Cariaco Basin: Analog for shale oil/gas unconventional reservoirs."
