Over the last two decades Professor Fogler has centered his research on problems related to upstream engineering, focusing mainly on asphaltene and paraffin deposition. Under Professor Fogler's guidance 44 Ph.D. students have graduated, publishing over 230 research articles. He and his students are well known for their work on paraffin and asphaltene flow, reaction and precipitation kinetics; fused chemical reactions; gelation kinetics; colloidal phenomena; and catalyzed dissolution of minerals. In addition to funding by government agencies, an industrial affiliates funding program has been in existence for over 35 years. Currently the affiliates program consists of 9 major oil companies that each provides $50,000 annually. A number of research results are now being used in industrial applications.
This section is to recognize outstanding work done by alumni of the research group.
