Geological and Atmospheric Sciences

Iowa State University

Dr. Franciszek J. “Franek" Hasiuk obtained his PhD in geology from the University of Michigan in 2008. He then worked in various upstream companies at ExxonMobil including the Carbonate Research Group in the Upstream Research Company until Fall 2012 when he took a position as assistant professor at Iowa State University. He currently studies carbonate geochemistry and petrophysics as well as the application of 3D printing to petrophysical analysis of reservoir rocks. This work is carried out in his Geological Fabrication Laboratory, or GeoFabLab for short.
