Research Interests: My research interests are mainly focuses on: 1) reservoir characterization and modeling; 2) basin analysis and sequence architecture; and 3) regional tectonics and sedimentation. Primary goals are: a) combining outcrop and subsurface data to document sandstone reservoir characteristics, quality, and potential; and b) using multidisciplinary approach to understand tectonic processes impact and control to basin evolution and stratigraphy. Projects involve 2D/3D seismic interpretation; well log interpretation and correlation; outcrop measurements, sandstone petrology; geostatistical analysis and reservoir stochastic modeling; depositional systems and facies analysis; subsidence analysis and basin modeling; provenance studies; U-Pb zircon geochronology; field mapping; and GIS.

*AAPG Imperial Barrel Award (IBA) competition
*Globe Tectonics and Basin Analysis (co-teaching with Dr. Alsleben)
*Prospect to Production (assisting Prof. Brogdon)

I am always looking for motivated MS students to work on Tectonics and Sedimentation projects in central China and South America; Basin analysis projects in mid-continental region; and Reservoir characterization and older field re-evaluation projects in Texas and Oklahoma. If you are interested, please contact me (email: x.xie@tcu.edu, phone: 817-257-4395) for more details.
