Graduated Summer 2017
Master's of Science in Petroleum Engineering
Primary office:
4160 Learned Hall


I am a M.Sc. student in Petroleum Engineering working with Dr. Reza Barati since Fall 2015. I received my B.Sc. in Petroleum Engineering at Petroleum University of Technology, Khuzestan, Iran. I had two internships at the National Iranian Oil Company (NIOC) and Schelumberger. My research focus is to understand the mechanism of stabilizing the surfactant generated CO2 foam using polyelectrolytes and polyelectrolyte complex nanoparticles (PECNP) prepared in high salinity produced water. My M.Sc. project has been funded by NSF and a consortium of oil and gas companies. I was involved in different projects such as reservoir characterization and simulation, seismic data interpretation, advanced reservoir simulation, unconventional resources, low salinity waterflooding and acid reaction measurements for matrix acidizing during my M.Sc. My research interests are EOR, unconventional resources, hydraulic fracturing and numerical simulation.
