Graduate Student Quin Miller completes Summer ‘16 Grant Hat-Trick
Graduate student Quin Miller was recently awarded three grants that will support his dissertation research concerning unconventional reservoir rock pore network evolution. Miller’s submission to The Clay Minerals Society (CMS) was the highest ranked student research proposal, making him the recipient of the 2016 Robert C. Reynolds, Jr. Research Award. This $2,480 award also includes one year of CMS membership. Additionally, Miller received a $2,000 student research scholarship from the Unconventional Reservoir Special Interest Group of The Society of Petrophysicists and Well Log Analysts. Lastly, Miller was granted the 2016 Spackman Award by The Society for Organic Petrology (TSOP). Miller had the highest rated proposal and will receive $1,000 from TSOP to apply to his research. All three awards will help support Miller’s neutron scattering, microscopy, and experimental activities at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, the Center for Advanced Energy Studies, and the University of Wyoming.
Quinn is advised by Associate Professor John Kaszuba.
