Miles P Wilson

Miles Wilson is currently undertaking a PhD at Durham University (UK) investigating the potential for hydrofracturing fluids in deep shales to migrate to shallow groundwater resources. Miles has a first class B.Sc. (Hons.) in Geophysics with Geology (Durham University) and an M.Sc. with distinction in Petroleum Geoscience (Heriot-Watt University, UK). Prior to and alongside his PhD, Miles has researched and continues to research induced seismicity.

Professor Jon G Gluyas

Professor Jon G Gluyas

Jon Gluyas is a geologist with 35 years of industrial and academic experience.  Following 28 years in the petroleum industry, during which time he founded two oil companies, he joined Durham University (UK) in 2009 as Chair of Geoenergy & Carbon Capture and Storage. His research interests cover a wide range of geoenergy topics linked by a common theme of water/rock interaction and the movement of fluids in the subsurface. The research addresses primary energy production (geothermal and petroleum), energy storage and fluid disposal.
