Reece, Julia Assistant Professor


My research program focuses on understanding the mechanics and flow behavior of mudrocks with applications in subsurface pressures/stresses, basin modeling, and submarine slope failures. I am particularly interested in the controls on permeability and compressibility in marine sediments. In addition, I study physical and chemical diagenesis in shale gas reservoirs. My group uses field samples and data and employs a suite of laboratory techniques to pursue these research interests including sedimentological and geotechnical experimentation (grain size, Atterberg Limits, uniaxial consolidation, petrography). We also use imaging techniques (Scanning Electron Microscope) in order to analyze microstructures of the mudrocks.
