Professor, Stanford University
Tony Kovscek is the Keleen and Carlton Beal Professor of Energy Resources Engineering at Stanford University and a Senior Fellow in the Precourt Institute for Energy. His research group examines the physics of flow through porous media at length scales that vary from the pore to the laboratory to the reservoir. Professor Kovscek has extensive experience with laboratory work and modeling reservoirs for unconventional hydrocarbon production and geologic CO₂ sequestration. He is one of the most published and cited researchers in his field and has won multiple awards including the prestigious John Franklin Carll Award Society of Petroleum Engineers in 2021.
