Dr. Shaochang Wo
Shaochang Wo is a senior research scientist at the Enhanced Oil Recovery Institute (EORI) at the University of Wyoming. He holds a B.S. degree in Mathematics from Xi’an Jiaotong University (China), an M.S. degree in Fluid Mechanics from the Institute of Porous Flow and Fluid Mechanics of China National Petroleum Corporation, and a Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics from the University of Wyoming. Prior to joining EORI in 2004, he worked as an advisory scientist in the Fossil Energy Technologies Department at the Idaho National Engineering and Environmental Laboratory, a senior analyst at the Lasso Technologies in Dallas and as a senior research associate at the Petroleum Recovery Research Center at the New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology. As an applied mathematician by training, Shaochang enjoys learning and sharing knowledge with geologists and engineers. He has engaged in broad research activities including simulation of multi-phase flow in oil and gas reservoirs, characterization and modeling of naturally fractured reservoirs, evaluation of field CO2-EOR floods, risk-based CO2 sequestration assessment, and the application of fuzzy logics and neural networks in reinterpretation of old well logs, and is the author of more than 30 publications.
