Darin George’s career spans 25 years of work in measuring and understanding gas and multiphase flows. One of his favorite interests is the variety of energy supplies that power the world, and he has often applied his flow measurement expertise to support the chemical and energy industries.
George comes to Trinity from Southwest Research Institute, where his research improved industry standards for fair and equitable natural gas measurement and for the use of compressed natural gas as a vehicle fuel. George is a recognized expert on natural gas quality and methods of accurately collecting natural gas samples for analysis. He is glad to bring his experience in research and project management to Trinity, where he now oversees the Senior Design Program in Engineering Science.
