Features in Energy

  • New Seismic Processing and Acquisition Research Projects

    The ability to broaden the bandwidth of seismic data and deliver that enhancement to the target and reservoir has clear benefits for more successful exploration, appraisal, and development-well placement. Several fundamental seismic research projects in the Department of Physics at the University of Houston are identifying challenges in that arena and delivering new capability and effective solutions.
  • Energy, Artificial Intelligence & Robotics: The Future of People in Energy Production

    UH Energy’s fourth and last energy symposium for 2017-18 featured robotics experts Rasheed Haq, global head of AI, robotics and data engineering for Sapient Consulting; Julia Badger, project manager for robonaut and autonomous spacecraft management projects at NASA-Johnson Space Center; Michael “Mickey” Frish, manager of industrial sensors at Physical Sciences; and David Reid, chief marketing officer at National Oilwell Varco.

  • Student Spotlight - Nicolas Xiong

    While most 17-year-olds are consumed with angst and excitement as they navigate the complex college application process, Xiong is already five months removed from receiving his diploma—not from high school, but from the University of Houston.
