Bio


A reservoir engineer with a B.Sc degree in petroleum engineering. My work experience is in gas reservoir management which involved wide range of tasks starting from well planning, well log analysis, well completion/stimulation to reserves estimation, reservoir simulation, and optimization. I have special interest in tight gas reservoirs development and management. I am currently completing my Masters degree in Petroleum Engineering at Stanford University.

Current Research and Scholarly Interests


I am interested in studying the multiphase flow simulation of matrix-fracture interaction in a capillary-dominated environments. The ultimate practical goal is to develop a numerical solver that can better predict the hydrocarbon recovery from fractured reservoirs.
