Noynaert, Samuel individual record
Associate Professor of Practice

My primary research focus is the Applied Drilling Research initiative, a physics-based drilling research program dedicated to improving drilling performance. Additional research interests include horizontal/deviated drilling, drilling automation and finding solutions to drilling-related problems in unconventional reservoirs.
