John Ullo received his degrees in Physics from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (BS '69) and Nuclear Physics (PhD '73) from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Upon graduation, he joined the Westinghouse Bettis Laboratory under the Naval Reactors program where he worked on computational reactor physics. He was a member of the physics team that helped develop the Light Water Breeder Reactor concept based on the thorium-U233 fuel cycle. Dr. Ullo has been with Schlumberger since 1980 when he joined as a senior research scientist working on new logging techniques. Currently, he is a Senior Management Advisor on future research initiatives at the new Schlumberger Doll Research Center in Cambridge, MA. Several recent prior positions within Schlumberger include: Vice-President & General Manager of the Schlumberger Austin Technology Center from 2001 to 2004, Director of Research for Reservoir Evaluation at Schlumberger Doll from 1996 to 2001 and Managing Director of Product Development for Seismic Processing and Evaluation at Schlumberger Geco-Prakla (now Western Geco) in the UK from 1993-1996. Earlier he held several R&D management positions in North America.
His technical interests are mathematical modeling, computational physics, oil & gas reservoir evaluation and materials science. In a current advisory role he is helping formulate a portfolio of new research directions for the Schlumberger lab to pursue as part of an appropriate response to the challenging demand/supply conditions that exist today. Many of these involve adaptation of new nanotechnologies and applications to problems in oil & gas exploration, extraction and long term management of by products such as CO2. He serves on external advisory committees at Texas A&M (Nuclear Engineering), the Center for High-rate Nanomanufacturing at Northeastern University, Princeton University (Civil and Environmental Engineering) and Boston University (Leadership Council for the College of Engineering). He also serves as Schlumberger's Executive Ambassador to MIT.
