Dan is a Sr. Partner Solutions Architect at AWS where he is responsible for driving digital transformation for companies within the energy verticals globally. He is the 2021 winner of the AWS “Shark Tank” Competition. After graduating from Brown University (2001) with a B.S. in Geology/Physics/Mathematics, Dan Kahn received his M.S. in Geophysics from Georgia Institute of Technology (2004) with a thesis, Concentration of Methane Hydrate: A Study of the Blake Ridge. He then earned a Ph.D. from Duke University (2008), working at the Krafla, Iceland geothermal station and the Basel Hot Dry Rock Project with a dissertation, Crack Propagation in Hydro‐Fractured Reservoirs: A Study Using Double‐Difference Location Techniques. Dan worked at Exxon as a Senior Geophysicist (2008‐2011), during which time he did structural and stratigraphic interpretation of the Austin Chalk Trend and was lead survey designer for the Ranridge and Papua New Guinea projects. He was an Exxon Gold Service Medallion recipient (2008). Dan joined ION Geophysical in 2011, where he specialized in the characterization of unconventional reservoirs through microseismic fracture imaging and analysis. He was co‐developer ION’s Java‐based microseismic tool kit, authoring 7 patents. Dan moved to Devon in 2015 where he was appointed to the core leadership group, charged with re‐designing Devon to implement real‐time, automated, full‐field reservoir characterization. He was responsible for overseeing data acquisition and analysis for the description of the dynamics of unconventional reservoirs, including microseismic, magnetotelluric, and time domain electromagnetics. Dan pioneered advances in the use of fiber optic techniques for characterizing the dynamics of hydro-fractured reservoirs and was named Devon’s Innovator of the Year. With this background, Dan co-founded and was COO of Reservoir Imaging Solutions, where partnerships and joint ventures were created with energy service companies to deliver a more efficient and cost-effective product for energy companies. Dan was also a USA Olympic Trials qualifier in the Marathon with the “A” standard.
