My research interests are reservoir fluid characterization, well performance and artificial lifts, gas hydrates, and flow assurance (wax, asphaltene, scale, hydrates).
As a Lecturer at University of Portsmouth, I am involved with learning and teaching activities as well as with research in the area of Petroleum Engineering.
Having a BSc degree in chemical engineering from AmirKabir University, an MSc in reservoir engineering from IFP School, and a PhD in petroleum engineering from Heriot-Watt University, I have recently become a chartered engineer (CEng) registered with Engineering Council, UK.
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.
During my 4-year PhD research in Edinburgh, I carried out various experiments on the capability of gas hydrates in storage and separation of CO2, H2 and natural gas. I also worked on a project about scale management in petroleum wells in TOTAL as an intern trainee in 2004.
I have presented several training courses and workshops to industry professionals on different petroleum engineering subjects.
