Inside Stanford Earth
We teach courses and perform research relevant to the production and transformation of energy resources.
Our research groups focus on optimizing oil recovery from petroleum reservoirs, carbon capture and sequestration, efficient geothermal engineering, clean and efficient energy conversions, and renewable energy.
Carbon Storage (Benson)
Data-Driven Modeling and Simulations (Tartakovsky)
Environmental Assessment & Optimization (Brandt)
Geothermal Program (Horne)
Multiscale Physics in Energy Systems (Battiato)
Physics-based Energy Control Lab (Onori)
Our industry affiliate programs conduct research and expose our students to a wide array of real world problems in energy resources.
