Mei Mei joined Basin and Petroleum System Modeling program at Stanford University as a postdoctoral scholar since September 2019. Her current research is focusing on basin modeling for the Vaca Muerta source rock sequence of Argentina to better understand the petroleum generation, expulsion, and migration history. She is using multidisciplinary methods of geology, geochemistry, rock physics, and petroleum engineering to achieve better modeling, mechanisms, quantification, and prediction with uncertainty analysis. She achieved her PhD from University of Houston in May 2018. Her PhD work focused on the scientific underpinning of geochemical inversion: developing and improving methods for unraveling origins of petroleum. The study areas of her PhD work include Almond/Mesaverde Formation in Greater Green River Basin southwestern Wyoming, Eagle Ford Formation in Texas, Monterey Formation in California, and Tuwaiq Mountain Formation in the Middle East. During her PhD study, she interned with ExxonMobil Upstream Research Company Petroleum Geochemistry Group in summer 2016, worked as a teaching assistant for courses of Petroleum Geochemistry and Petroleum System Analysis 2014-2018, and worked as a research assistant at Center for Petroleum Geochemistry at University of Houston 2013-2018. She obtained her Master and Bachelor degree in Analytical Chemistry and Applied Chemistry from Beijing University of Chemical Technology in 2012 and 2009, respectively.
