Dr. Steven Bryant joined the University of Calgary in 2014 as the Canada Excellence Research Chair in Materials Engineering for Unconventional Oil Reservoirs and a professor in the Department of Chemical and Petroleum Engineering in the Schulich School of Engineering. Dr. Bryant leads an interdisciplinary discovery-driven research program exploring advances in nanotechnology and materials science to re-imagine how society can benefit from hydrocarbon resources with little or no environmental impact. Dr. Bryant pioneered the fields of digital petrophysics and nanoparticles for engineering applications. He has more than 350 publications in books, book chapters, peer-reviewed journals, and conference proceedings on applications in production engineering, reservoir engineering, and formation evaluation.
