A University of Wyoming faculty member has been recognized by the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) for his contributions to the field of rock physics.

Dario Grana, a UW School of Energy Resources assistant professor in the Department of Geology and Geophysics, is a 2016 recipient of SEG’s J. Clarence Karcher Award. The award is for significant contributions to the science and technology of exploration geophysics by a young geophysicist. Recipients must be less than 35 years of age.

Grana has published numerous papers on rock physics in peer-reviewed international journals as lead author and published or contributed to multiple SEG conference proceedings. He will be honored during the SEG International Exposition and 86th Annual Meeting Oct. 16-21 in Dallas.

Grana, who came to UW after earning his Ph.D. at Stanford, has received numerous honors. In 2014, he won the Petroleum Engineering Junior Faculty Research Award from the Society for Petroleum Engineering, as well as the Eni Award from the president of Italy for developing an innovative method to obtain information about oil and gas reservoirs using seismic techniques.

His work at UW includes the development of a graduate-level course called “Rock Physics and Reservoir Modeling,” which focuses on applications for oil and gas reservoirs.

SEG, the international society of applied geophysics, is a not-for-profit organization that promotes the science of geophysics and the education of applied geophysicists. Based in Tulsa, Okla., and established in 1930, SEG connects the world of applied geophysics.
