-Advanced sampling efforts in identifying potential odor sources at Richmond Refinery and nearby areas by increasing database content by 45% through use of sampling bags and a gas chromatograph tool
-Managed on-line review of oil skimmer treatment technology to develop recommendation for use at Chevron facility

Reservoir Engineering Intern, Statoil North America, Inc. (US Onshore- Marcellus) May-Aug 2014
-Increased recoverable reserves for asset by approximately 10% from previous business plan volumes by re-evaluating Estimated Ultimate Recoveries (EUR) for 156 wells through Rate Transient Analysis, Decline Curve Analysis and Type Well Curve Analysis
-Prioritized commercial viability of operated and non-operated dry gas and condensate-rich fluid areas of the Marcellus asset
-Investigated and data-mined effect of completion parameters (fluid volume, stage spacing, etc.) on EUR on 59 dry gas region wells

Engineering Technician, Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (Water Division) June-Aug 2013
-Improved reporting process by standardizing templates of drinking water systems using MS Visio
-Administered water, benthic and sediment sampling at bays, rivers and creeks and documented 10 wastewater investigations
