Student Research is an important part of the undergraduate and graduate experience.  Dr. Bedle advises several student research projects at both levels, tailoring projects to take advantage of the student’s talents and interests.  These projects range from machine learning to seismic attribute analysis, and include seismic interpretation and petrophysical aspects.

For Fall 2020 admission, Dr. Bedle currently has funding to support 1 phD student.  Self-supporting students are still encouraged to apply.
