Adam Tuppen

Originally From: De Kalb, Texas
Degree Program at MInes: MS Geophysics, Minor in Petroleum Engineering




I graduated from The University of Texas at Austin with a Bachelor of Science degree in Geophysics with High Honors and a Business Foundations Certificate with Highest Distinction in 2016. After completing my undergraduate degree, I worked as a research technician in a geochemistry lab at the Bureau of Economic Geology in Austin, Texas, specializing in drill core analysis using handheld X-ray fluorescence (XRF) analyzers.

I joined RCP in the Fall of 2017 and am pursuing a Master of Science degree in Geophysics with a minor in Petroleum Engineering. The wealth of knowledge and experience of the RCP sponsors, faculty, staff, and other students, along with the ability to work in an integrated team environment, are preparing me for a successful career in the energy industry.


My research interests include data analytics and machine learning, fiber optics and distributed acoustic sensing (DAS), and joint inversion. As a member of the Phase XVII team working on the Eagle Ford Stimulation Monitor Project, my role involves collaborating with other students to integrate seismic, VSP, microseismic, fiber optic, production, and completion data for characterization of the reservoir.


In my spare time I love to enjoy the outdoors and nature, especially through hunting and fishing. I am a competitive shotgun shooter and powerlifter, and was a member of both club teams at The University of Texas. I also love to travel and have visited 11 different countries over 5 continents with hopefully many more to come.
