Ben Tutolo

Assistant Professor, Dept. of Geoscience, University of Calgary

Benjamin M. Tutolo is an Assistant Professor at the University of Calgary, Canada. He received his B.S. from the Pennsylvania State University in 2010 and his PhD from the University of Minnesota in 2015. From 2015 to 2017, he worked as a postdoctoral research associate at the University of Oxford, UK. Ben’s research has ranged widely, from geologic CO2 Capture, Utilization, and Storage to lacustrine geochemistry and hydrothermal processes in ultramafic rocks. The driving questions that unite Ben’s research revolve around the reactive transport of fluids, solutes, and heat in geologic systems. To answer these questions, he integrates physical and chemical characterization of laboratory, outcrop, and drill core samples with thermodynamic, kinetic, and fully-coupled reactive transport models.
