QRI is excited to announce a new addition to our esteemed group of QRI Scholars and Associates.

Dr. Siddharth “Sid” Misra is an associate professor in the Harold Vance Department of Petroleum Engineering with a joint appointment in the Department of Geology and Geophysics, Texas A&M University. He received his Bachelor of Technology degree in electrical engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay and the Doctoral degree in petroleum and geosystems engineering from the University of Texas at Austin.

Dr. Misra is a researcher and educator in the field of subsurface sensing and sensor interpretation, who develops new theories and computational tools to better understand the interaction of sensor physics with physical processes/properties of subsurface earth resources. He has been a pioneer in data-driven workflows for subsurface characterization and engineering. He is the lead author for two popular books: “Machine Learning for Subsurface Characterization” and “Multifrequency Electromagnetic Data Interpretation for Subsurface Characterization”. He has developed 8 patented technologies on machine learning and electromagnetic sensing implementations for subsurface characterization. Unsupervised learning and reinforcement learning tools developed by his research group have been showcased by ABC25 news channel, ACM Communications, and Science Daily.

In 2018, Dr. Misra was recognized as Department of Energy Early Career Awardee. In 2020, for his significant contributions to exploration geophysics and subsurface engineering, he received several international awards: SEG J. Clarence Karcher Award, SPWLA Young Technical Professional Award, and EAGE Arie Van Weelden Award. He also received SPE Mid-Continent Formation Evaluation Award (2018) and SPE Gulf Coast Formation Evaluation Award (2020).

We are proud to have Dr. Misra as part of our QRI family.


Dr. Nansen G. Saleri
