Yes, Your Research May Indeed Be Useful...

Many graduate students may wonder whether their research may one day be useful to industry.  This presentation offers hope to current students (in a touch-in-cheek manner) that yes, your research may indeed be useful beyond your degree and the ERE Department.  In fact, it may have greater impact than you imagine. 

I start by introducing KAPPA Engineering, which was a start-up co-founded by a graduate of the Stanford Department of Petroleum Engineering in 1987, long before start-ups were in fashion.  KAPPA has grown significantly since then, and currently its integrated software platform (KAPPA-Workstation) is the industry standard for the analysis of dynamic data, including Pressure Transient Analysis (Saphir NL) and Rate Transient Analysis (Topaze NL).  Since its inception, not only has KAPPA hired many Stanford graduates, but Stanford research has made valuable, often critical contributions to KAPPA’s products and workflows.  This presentation provides an overview of these contributions, and offers to current students a small glimpse of the tremendous impact of department alumni have had in the industry over the years.
