Anthony Kovscek

Professor, Energy Resources Engineering, Stanford University

Tony Kovscek is the Keleen and Carlton Beal Professor of Energy Resources Engineering in the Stanford Doerr School of Sustainability where he joined the faculty in 1996. Currently he directs the Center for Mechanistic Control of Unconventional Formations, a DOE-funded Energy Frontier Research Center, the Stanford Center for Carbon Storage, and the SUETRI-A Program on Subsurface Engineering for Sustainability. Kovscek and his research group develop and apply advanced imaging techniques, experimentation, and models to understand complex multiphase flows of gas, water, and organic phases in natural and manufactured porous media with applications in carbon storage, energy storage, and increased utilization of carbon dioxide for subsurface applications. Such research has resulted in more than 200 peer-reviewed publications and 2 books. He has been honored with election to the U.S. National Academy of Engineers, the John Franklin Carll Award for distinguished achievement in engineering from the Society of Petroleum Engineers, and the School of Earth Sciences Award for Excellence in Teaching.
