Project Description

Dr. Cook is an assistant professor in the School of Earth Sciences at The Ohio State University. She received her B.S. in geology from the University of Tulsa and her Ph.D. in marine geology and geophysics from Columbia University. Dr. Cook’s research is focused on natural gas hydrates, an ice-like form of methane gas and solid water that forms in marine sediments. She uses analytical data like geophysical well logs, seismic data, and sediment cores along with mathematical models to investigate these natural gas hydrates. Since she arrived at Ohio State, Dr. Cook’s research has been funded primarily through several grants from the U.S. Department of Energy, including an $81 million project focused on drilling and recovering natural gas hydrate in sand reservoirs from the Gulf of Mexico.
