The EERC welcomes Dr. Jun He to its team of oil and gas engineers and scientists. In his position as a Petrophysicist, Jun assists EERC clients by developing geophysical models of the subsurface, performing regional geophysical characterizations, performing petrophysical analyses of geophysical data, and working with a diverse team of scientists and engineers to assess project uncertainties in oil and gas development and geologic CO2 storage.

Jun holds a Ph.D. degree in Petroleum Engineering and an M.S. degree in Petroleum Geology from the University of North Dakota (UND). He earned a B.S. degree in Petroleum Geology Exploration from the Southwest Petroleum Institute, China.

Jun's principal areas of interest and expertise include geology; petroleum systems; programming; data management; the application of rock mechanics to petroleum reservoir development; the application of geophysics and well-logging principles in the development of petroleum reservoirs; and the application of geophysical methods for monitoring, verification, and accounting for CO2 storage and enhanced oil recovery operations.

“There are many reasons I really like what I do at the EERC,” Jun said, “but first is that people are so nice here, and I work with a great team of multidisciplinary researchers. We do cutting-edge work together, and I believe we will accomplish exciting and groundbreaking research in the near future. Second, the EERC’s research tools and access to big data are outstanding.”

Jun comes from Wuhang, Hubai, in the center of China. He is married and has a son attending UND. A sports fan, Jun participates in some physical activity nearly every day. He has helped his soccer team become UND intramural champion numerous times. Although his favorite sport has always been soccer, Jun is now discovering that he enjoys playing tennis even more.
