Tapan Mukerji (650) 723-6106
Personal bio
Tapan Mukerji is an Associate Professor (Research) and is involved with the Stanford Center for Reservoir Forecasting (SCRF), The Stanford Rock Physics (SRB) and The Basin and Petroleum System Modeling (BPSM) research groups at Stanford University. Tapan obtained his Ph.D. in geophysics from Stanford University and M.Sc (Tech), also in geophysics from Banaras Hindu University, India. His research interests include rock physics, geostatistics, wave propagation, stochastic methods for quantitative reservoir characterization, time-lapse reservoir monitoring, geomodeling, uncertainty quantification and value of information in geoscience applications. Tapan combines experience in conducting leading edge research, teaching, and directing graduate student research. He was awarded the Karcher Award in 2000 by the Society of Exploration Geophysicists, and the 2014 ENI award. He is associate editor for Geophysics, journal of the Society of Exploration Geophysicists, and Computers and Geosciences. In addition to numerous journal publications, he has co-authored The Rock Physics Handbook, Quantitative Seismic Interpretation, and Value of Information in the Earth Sciences, all published by Cambridge University Press. Tapan's courses for advanced undergraduates and graduates introduce students to mathematical methods for modeling, data analysis, and simulation using modern high-level software. He also teaches graduate level courses on digital rock physics, geostatistics and seismic reservoir characterization, and basin modeling.
