Biography 2014[1]

Dr. McClure is an assistant professor in the Department of Petroleum and Geosystems Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin. He joined the faculty in January 2013.

He attended Stanford University, where He earned a B.S. in chemical engineering (2009), an M.S. in petroleum engineering (2009), and a Ph.D in energy resources engineering (2012).

His research focuses on modeling and characterization in three complementary areas: hydraulic stimulation in shale, hydraulic stimulation for exploitation of geothermal resources, and induced seismicity. He develops modeling tools designed to describe the physical processes taking place during these complex processes. Objectives of his research are to develop better fundamental physical understanding, to develop improved modeling techniques and tools, to develop improved methodologies for determining induced seismicity hazard, and to develop practical techniques that could be used in the field to improve economic performance and mitigate risk.

Best Paper in Geophysics 2011

Mark McClure and Roland N. Horne received the 2011 Best Paper in Geophysics Award for their paper Investigation of injection-induced seismicity using a coupled fluid flow and rate/state friction model.[2]
