Welcome to my site! 

I am interested in all things related to fluid flow and fluid volume assessment in rocks. The research in the Daigle group currently focuses on:

-Methane hydrate accumulation in marine sediments, and understanding multiphase flow during production from hydrate reservoirs

-Deformation and associated changes in pore structure and permeability in shales following hydraulic fracturing

-Applications of nanoparticles and nanotechnology in various aspects of oil and gas exploration and production

-Improving safety during drilling through better prediction and prevention of lost circulation and wellbore stability issues
