Main profile

PhD Student

Lang finished his MSc degree in RG2 at the University of Alberta in 2015. He's been working on the development of Reservoir Geomechanics Pressuremeter (RGP) testing for a better anisotropic stress measurement in overconsolidated clayey formation. His research interest is in the in-situ testing and evaluation of the regional stress field. He likes programming, running and traveling.
