1. What excites you about the oil and gas industry?

I am passionate about the oil and gas industry because of the changes that are happening right now in energy. The oil and gas industry produces a fundamental and necessary product for society; although the world is undergoing an energy transition.

1. What inspired you to apply for UT PGE?

I wanted to become a petroleum engineer because we take fundamental equations, turn them into elegant solutions, and solve challenging problems despite all the uncertainty.  When I made the decision to become a petroleum engineer, coming to UT PGE was an easy choice since UT PGE is the global leader in petroleum engineering.
