training specialists to the upstream oil and gas industry

Professor Martin Blunt

Professor Martin J. Blunt is professor of Petroleum Engineering at Imperial College London. He joined Imperial in June 1999. Previous to this he was Associate Professor of Petroleum Engineering at Stanford University in California. Before joining Stanford in 1992, he was a research reservoir engineer with BP in Sunbury-on-Thames.

He holds MA and PhD (1998) degrees in theoretical physics from Cambridge University. Professor Blunt's research interests are in multi-phase flow in porous media with applications to oil and gas recovery, carbon dioxide storage, and contaminant transport and clean-up in polluted aquifers. He performs experimental, theoretical and numerical research into many aspects of flow and transport in porous systems, including pore-scale modelling of displacement processes, and large-scale simulation using streamline-based methods.

Martin is Editor-in-Chief of the journal Transport in Porous Media. He was awarded the 2011 Lester Uren Award for contributions to petroleum technology made before the age of 45 and the 2012 lifetime achievement Darcy Award from the Society of Core Analysts. He has over 200 scientific publications which have been cited more than 11,000 times.
