    This fall, this Cullen College of Engineering is proud to welcome Christine Ehlig-Economides to its faculty as the first-ever William C. Miller Endowed Chair Professor of petroleum engineering. A member of the prestigious National Academy of Engineering (NAE), Ehligh-Economides is the 9th NAE member to join the Cullen College’s faculty since 2008, bringing the total number of NAE members at the college up to 11. She became the first American woman to earn a Ph.D. in petroleum engineering when she obtained her doctorate from Stanford University in 1979.

    Ehlig-Economides is a world-renowned expert in reservoir engineering, pressure transient analysis, integrated reservoir characterization, complex well design and production enhancement. Her career has taken her around the world as a Schlumberger engineer, and for the past 10 years she has taught petroleum engineering at Texas A&M University. She’s published more than 115 papers, lectured or consulted in 50 countries and has authored two patents. She is one of only 16 Quantum Reservoir Impact (QRI) Scholars and has recently been named a Chief Scientist for the Sinopec Research Institute on Petroleum Engineering as one of the Thousand Talents in China. During her career, she has served on numerous Society of Petroleum Engineer (SPE) committees and task forces.

    "My burning desire was to start my own consulting business," said M.S. Kalsi (MSME '70, Ph.D. ME '75), founding owner of Kalsi Engineering and alumnus of the UH Cullen College of Engineering. In 1978, that's exactly what he did.

    Three years after obtaining his Ph.D. in mechanical engineering from UH, Kalsi took a leap of faith, leaving a stable, full-time position as R&D Manager at WKM Valves -- a major valve manufacturer that is now a part of Cameron -- to build his own business from the ground up.

    The company Kalsi envisioned wasn't just an engineering consulting firm -- it was also a research and development firm which produced patented products in valve and sealing technologies, conducting design, analysis and equipment testing under real-world conditions for its clients. Today, Kalsi Engineering boasts over 45 patents in seals and valves; 35 of these pertain to rotary seals that are widely used in demanding applications in the oil field drilling and mining industries.
