Houston Alumni Idea Exchange | March 7, 2017

It will be no small feat to meet society’s escalating energy demands while protecting the environment.

But world-renowned researcher Steven Bryant and his team at the University of Calgary are exploring a mighty tiny solution: nanoparticles.

Join Bill Rosehart, dean of the University of Calgary’s Schulich School of Engineering, and Steven in an Idea Exchange about this revolutionary approach to oil extraction, which will increase energy production and dramatically decrease environmental impact.

Steven, UCalgary’s first Canada Excellence Research Chair in Material Engineering for Unconventional Oil Reservoirs, is a leader in nanotechnology applications. Prior to joining UCalgary, he made significant scientific contributions through his work at the University of Texas in Austin.
