Working to reduce costs--developing down-hole instrumentation to reduce loss circulation, and "slim-hole" technology that could cut cost of drilling by 1/2 (appropriate for remote village applications). Also working on geothermal ground source heat pump concept (drilling, placement and heat exchanger design). Helped commercialize new drill bit.
