Andrew J. Pulham is the Canada Research Chair in petroleum geoscience. Federal Industry Minister Allan Rock announced the approval of the position on June 25, 2002.
Dr. Pulham's research examines the principle controls affecting fluid flow in oil and gas sandstone reservoirs, particularly those having relevance to Atlantic Canada. More specifically, his research aims to decipher the depositional history and paleo-biology of reservoirs and to quantify what physical and biological structures and fabrics are most important to the recovery and injection of fluids.
Dr. Pulham completed his undergraduate degree in physical geography and geology at Liverpool University. His PhD, from the University of Wales at Swansea, focused on ancient deltas. He has been an associate professor at Memorial's Department of Earth Sciences since June 2001, bringing with him a wealth of research experience acquired through his 12 years in the oil and gas industry, and five years as a research associate at the University of Colorado.
