She spent 18 years at the University of South Carolina were she was a Professor and the Director of the Earth Sciences and Resources Institute.

Title:   Onshore/ Offshore Potential Carbon Storage Resources: Case Studies from the Southeast US, Gulf of Mexico, and the Midcontinent

Abstract:   The Southeast Offshore Storage Resource Assessment (SOSRA), the Southeast Regional CO2 Utilization and Storage Acceleration Partnership (SECARB-USA), and SECARB Offshore research projects were funded by the U.S. Department of Energy with a focus on the development of offshore and onshore prospective storage resources for CO2. This work includes a replicable workflow of model-based inversion that provides the tools to discriminate lithology and predict porosity and permeability necessary for Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) in geologic reservoirs. These analyses have included integration of seismic surveys with core samples and geophysical well logs leading to a detailed stratigraphic, structural, petrophysical, and injection simulation model showing the heterogeneity and highly complex tectonic evolution of target reservoirs of the South Atlantic Margin and the Anadarko Basin. Moreover, some of the risks associated with offshore carbon storage activities are highlighted through a time-lapse 4D study at the Woolsey Mound, a cold seep methane hydrate at the Mississippi Canyon Lease Block 118 (MC118) in the Gulf of Mexico.
