Graduate Student Quin Miller Receives Two Fellowships

Quin Miller

August 13, 2015 — Graduate student Quin Miller (Ph.D.) recently received two fellowships that will support his research project titled,  “Pore network evolution in unconventional reservoirs: Experimental study of fluid-rock interactions.” The research will be conducted at the University of Wyoming and three U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) national labs. 

Miller, who is advised by Associate Professor John Kaszuba, is seeking to determine how unique geochemical reactions in confined environments, such as those occurring in pores, pore throats, and fractures, change the overall pore network of the rock. Miller recently received a graduate assistantship from the Center for Advanced Energy Studies (CAES) to support his research project. CAES is a research and education consortium among Boise State University, Idaho National Laboratory, Idaho State University, University of Idaho, and University of Wyoming. As part of his award, Miller will work in the CAES Microscopy and Characterization Suite with Professor Darryl Butt. Professor Butt is Boise State University’s Chair of Materials Science and Engineering and a CAES Associate Director. 

Miller has also recently been selected by the DOE to receive an Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) award. The award enables Miller to conduct neutron scattering experiments with Dr. Gernot Rother at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). Additionally, Miller will continue his collaboration with Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) Geochemist Todd Schaef, and supplement his CAES and ORNL activities with advanced spectroscopic measurements at PNNL.
