Researcher biography

Professor Suzanne Hurter has joined Earth Sciences after a career in the oil and gas industry in various roles in Shell (Netherlands), Schlumberger (Netherlands and Australia), QGC (BG‐Group) and Arrow Energy (Shell‐PetroChina). Previously she has worked in academia in Germany (Helmholtz Centre for Geosciences in Potsdam and the Leibnitz Institute of Applied Geophysics in Hannover) and Brazil (University of Sao Paulo). Research interests and activities include hydrocarbon maturation and thermal evolution of sedimentary basins, carbon sequestration, coupled modelling of flow, heat in porous and fractured media and using numerical modelling to evaluate and improve onshore gas production.

PhD Thesis  (University of Michigan): Thermal Structure and Evolution of the Paraná Basin, southern Brazil (1992).
