From the Geothermal Resources Council
Daniel Moos, Ph.D.
Dr. Daniel Moos is an expert in geomechanics and reservoir description with more than 30 years of experience in academia and industry, focused on measuring and understanding the effects of the in-situ stresses on upstream operations in oil and gas, geothermal, and mining exploration and development. He has published more than 100 papers and holds patents in the areas of rock physics, geophysics, stress determination, wellbore imaging, wellbore stability, and fracture stimulation. He was a founding member of the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory Borehole Research Group, and a 10-year participant in Stanford University’s SRB Consortium prior to co-founding GeoMechanics International which developed geomechanics software and delivered consulting and training to industry clients.
He joined Baker Hughes as part of GMI’s acquisition in 2008, and served as GMI Chief Scientist prior to promotion to Technology Fellow in 2011, and in 2012 founded Baker’s Palo Alto Innovation Center serving as its Director and then Chief Scientist. He recently resigned his position at Baker Hughes to focus on other activities. Dr. Moos received his PhD in geophysics from Stanford University, and BS in geology from Cornell University. He was elected an Honorary Member of the SPE in 2016.
