I am a Lecturer in Petroleum Engineering at the School of Engineering, University of Portsmouth.

I graduated with a BSc Degree in chemical engineering from AmirKabir University in 2001 and continued to do an MSc in reservoir engineering at IFP School. This was followed by an internship at TOTAL in 2004, where I worked on a project about scale management in petroleum wells. During my PhD research at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, I carried out various experiments on the application of gas hydrates in storage and separation of CO2, H2 and natural gas.

Prior to joining University of Portsmouth, I worked at Research Institute of Petroleum Industry (RIPI) in Tehran for 6 years where I was involved with various research projects on reservoir fluid studies, well performance analysis, artificial lifting, flow assurance (wax, asphaltene, gas hydrates) and water production management.

I have presented several training courses and workshops in the upstream oil industry on different petroleum engineering subjects.
