Dr. Hugh Daigle is an Associate Professor at The University of Texas at Austin within the Hildebrand Department of Petroleum and Geosystems Engineering.
Dr. Daigle’s research focuses on characterizing physical and transport properties of rocks using a combination of laboratory experiments and numerical simulation. His research currently focuses on:
- Methane hydrate accumulation in marine sediments, and understanding multiphase flow during production from hydrate reservoirs
- Applications of nanoparticles and nanotechnology in various aspects of oil and gas exploration and production
- Transport processes and geohazards in shallow marine sediments
