Researcher biography

Brian joined the Centre from the University of Wyoming where he was Professor and CEAS Fellow for Hydrocarbon Energy Resources in the department of Petroleum Engineering. Wyoming was at the centre of the US coal bed methane boom in the early 1990s and Brian conducted research in CBM/CSG at that time. He is widely published across many technical areas of petroleum engineering. His research interests include reservoir engineering and simulation, well-bore integrity and enhanced oil recovery. He has authored three text books including a very highly regarded (by the Society of Petroleum Engineering) reservoir engineering text.

Brian is based in The University of Queensland’s School of Chemical Engineering. He extends the Centre’s petroleum engineering research program and manages the University’s Master of Science (Petroleum Engineering) coursework program.
