Mark A. Meier, Professor at the University of Houston, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Scientists for dedication, achievements, and leadership in physics.
While in junior high school and high school, Dr. Meier had a strong interest in astronomy and after an interesting summer class on building telescopes, he knew he would have a future in physics. He pursued an education at the University of Tulsa and earned a Bachelor of Science in geophysics before continuing his education at the University of Texas at Austin. There Dr. Meier obtained a Master of Science in electrical engineering in 1992 and a PhD in electrical engineering in 1998. He began his professional career as a geophysical assistant at Cities Service Company from 1981 to 1982, before becoming a geophysicist at Atlantic Richfield Company in 1983. From 1984 to 2016, Dr. Meier found great success in the positions of a geophysicist at Western Geophysical Company of America, a research engineer and scientist assistant at Applied Research Laboratories and Fulton Research Center, and a research specialist at ExxonMobil Upstream Research Company.
During his time at Exxon, Mr. Meier took on the additional role of an adjunct professor of physics at the University of Houston in 2012. When he retired from Exxon and became a research professor at the university, he was given the opportunity to transfer and continue his research. Currently. Dr. Meier is a professor of physics at the university and is the co-patentee of five U.S patents and the sole patentee of two, including “Converted Mode Seismic Survey Design.” Outside of contributing to numerous professional journals, he is the co-author of “Theory for a Low Frequency Marine Dipole Seismic Source,” “Resonant Transducers for Solid-State Plasma Density Modulation,” and “Adiabatic Electron Thermal Pressure Fluctuations in Tokamak Plasmas,” among other publications. A member of the Society of Exploration Geophysicists, the Geophysical Society of Houston, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, and the IEEE Nuclear and Plasma Sciences Society, Mr. Meier would like to lead a successful consortium in five years.
