Since 2011 he has collaborated with SPE International in the North and South America Region. In the past, he was part of the board in SPE Calgary and SPE Western Venezuela Petroleum sections. Currently, his master’s research is related to geothermal energy to evaluate heat transfer in porous media. As Media and Membership Advisor, he plans to create a strategy to increase PES membership by making students aware of the importance of all engineering concentrations offered at the University of Calgary. He also aims to ensure that the students will know the importance of each career in the energy transition at a global level. Outside of school, Geragg enjoys travelling and watching movies with his family.
