Personal profile

Research interests

  • Reservoir heterogeneity and reservoir simulation
  • Simulation of CO2 Storage Research

For many years, Gillian was involved in a project to study the effect of reservoir heterogeneity on hydrocarbon recovery. In particular, she focussed on upscaling the effects of small-scale structures for use in larger scale models. From 2005-2008, she was a member of the Uncertainty Quantification Group and studied model complexity and error modelling . Over the past few years, she has applied the knowledge gained in oil-related projects to investigate CO2 storage in saline aquifers.

Biography

Gillian has BSc and PhD degrees in Astrophysics from Edinburgh University. However, for most of her career she has been involved with geoscience and engineering. She joined the Institute of Petroleum Engineering at Heriot-Watt University in 1990, initially as a Research Associate. She was promoted to Senior Research Associate in 1996 and to Research Fellow in 1998, and then to Lecturer in 2010. In 2009, she was presented with an SPE Aberdeen Award for contribution to industry.
