Research Interests:

I developed a geological-geophysical comprehensive workflow from Microscopic, Macroscopic to Megascopic scales for reservoir characterization, which involves Rock Typing, Electrofacies, Seismic Facies, Reservoir 3D Modeling and Genetic Analysis. This procedure successfully characterized the deeply buried carbonate reservoirs in Tarim Basin and turned out to be an effective integrated solution for strong heterogeneity reservoirs.
