Personal profile

Personal profile

Dr. Randy Doyle Hazlett joined NU in the summer of 2019. He received a PhD in Chemical Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin.  He immediately joined Mobil Exploration and Production Research in Dallas, Texas to direct research in the area of enhanced oil recovery.  There, Dr. Hazlett worked in conjunction with the National Synchrotron Light Source at Brookhaven National Laboratory and Los Alamos National Laboratory to simulate multiphase flow in porous rocks using some of the largest commercial supercomputers available at the time.  At Mobil, he was responsible for more than a dozen U.S. patents.  After 15 years of service, at the time of the Exxon-Mobil merger, Dr. Hazlett separated from Mobil to start his own R&D company.  He was successful in securing large grants for optimal well location technology under the National Science Foundation’s SBIR program for small businesses. 


Dr. Hazlett began his academic career in 2012, when he joined the MacDougall School of Petroleum Engineering at the University of Tulsa. There he continued to research and publish on mathematical solutions describing the behavior of advanced wells parallel to the unprecedented growth in drilling capability and fracturing technology necessary to unlock the hydrocarbon potential of shale.  He has worked in the area of rock mechanics and discrete well modeling for the last twenty years, resulting in numerous highly visible publications that establish him as a leader in reservoir modeling and well performance. Dr. Hazlett assumed the duties of Dean at SMG in June 2021.
