Dr. Alexander Petrovic Receives the 2021 Georg-Hunaeus-Prize

03 June, 2021

Congratulations to Dr. Alexander Petrovic on being awarded the 2021 Georg-Hunaeus-Prize. The prize was awarded to Dr. Petrovic by the German Society for Petroleum and Coal Science and Technology (DGMK) in recognition of his significant research on sub-seismic-scale sedimentological heterogeneities in carbonate reservoir analogues. The Georg-Hunaeus-Prize has been awarded to outstanding young scientists since 1989.

Dr. Petrovic holds a Ph.D. in Geology from the University of Tübingen, Germany.  He joined ANPERC, KAUST in 2018 as a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Carbonate Reservoir Studies Group (CaResS Geology)

Some of Dr. Petrovic’s publications include:

Spatial heterogeneities in a bioclastic shoal outcrop reservoir analogue: Architectural, cyclical and diagenetic controls on lateral pore distribution https://repository.kaust.edu.sa/handle/10754/660440
