About me:

My reputation for excellence and success has been earned with over a decade of experience conducting teaching, research and advancing my education in the petroleum-engineering field. Academically, I worked as lab Instructor and lecturer from 2005 to 2010, and currently, I am remotely teaching three courses as Assistant professor at Al Jabal Al Garbi University. Also, I worked as teaching assistant from 2012 to 2016 at University of Regina. My research experience covers several disciplines including, but not limited to core flooding techniques for enhanced heavy oil recovery, formation evaluation based on well logging and core analysis data, the application of EOR methods for unconventional reservoirs, reservoir simulation employing CMG-STARS, data interpretation and analysis, upgrading and emulsifying heavy oil for surface transportation, and produced water treatment. Besides, I have been working on an oil field for more than two years. I am looking forward to the opportunity to join the team and am confident in my ability to bring significant value.
