Research group: Groundwater and Hydrogeochemistry
I hold my B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in petroleum engineering, respectively, from Amirkabir University of Technology (Tehran Polytechnic) and the Petroleum University of Technology, Iran. During my bachelor's study, I have worked on the petrophysical assessment of tight carbonate reservoirs. Subsequently, I have conducted my master's research on the geochemical-petrophysical evaluation of a newly explored gas shale reservoir in southwestern Iran in the context of a national plan for developing unconventional resources. I also have 2 years of work experience in the National Iranian South Oil Company (NISOC). During this period, I have worked on the interpretation of the specific well logs and their applications to the geomechanical assessment of petroleum resources. This experience brought me more knowledge about the new aspects of geological studies of underground reservoirs. Since February 2020, I have attended the Groundwater and Hydrogeochemistry group of the Institute of Environmental Assessment and Water Research (IDAEA-CSIC) as a Ph.D. student, where I intend to pursue my research on other geo-energy applications. The main focus of my Ph.D. study is on the investigation of the coupled chemo-hydro-mechanical processes in porous media and their applications to geologic carbon storage and geothermal energy.
