Research Interests

Current research: Study of the influence of sea level change on dolomitization and its related pore structures

Previous research: Carbonate reservoir characterization and prediction of high permeability zones, Puguang Gas Field

  • Detailed core descriptions with a focus on pore structure classification
  • Study of the petrophysical responses of different diagenetic pore structures and quantification of different pore structures by petrophysical and rock physical parameters, such as the Frame Flexibility Factor in Sun's rock physics model and Cementation Factor in Archie's equation
  • Establishment of new permeability model based on pore structure classification for pre-stack seismic inversion of permeability on top of porosity and pore structure parameter inversion

Previous research: Petrophysical Analysis of Microbial Carbonate Reservoir, Little Cedar Creek, Alabama

  • Characterization of different sedimentary facies and related pore structures using the concept of Cementation Factor Deviation and Velocity Deviation; Correlation of permeability with pore structure variation from Cementation Factor analysis
