M.S. Geology – University of Tulsa, 2014



Yulun has been interested in petroleum-related topics since childhood. Born in a city powered by a major oil field in northeastern China, Yulun earned his B.S. degree in Petroleum Geology in Jilin University (China). Desiring to study rock-based reservoir characterization in more detail, Yulun moved to the University of Tulsa for his graduate-level education and worked with Dr. Robert Scott on the Lower Cretaceous shallow-marine carbonates in southwest Texas, which earned him a M.S. degree in Geology. Learning about the boom of unconventional resource plays, Yulun became interested in working further on the characterization of these reservoirs, and decided to pursue a PhD degree in the Boone Pickens School of Geology at Oklahoma State University. Yulun is currently working with Dr. Michael Grammer on the integrated characterization of the unconventional “Mississippian Limestone” play in north-central Oklahoma, USA.
