    DescriptionA Teesside University student has presented his fracking research in Parliament to a range of politicians and policy makers.
    Hadi Parvizi, 29, was selected to present at the prestigious SET for Britain event, a national poster competition involving high-achieving early career researchers.
    Originally from Iran, Hadi is working as a reservoir engineering consultant in London and also studying a PhD at Teesside University.
    Hadi was shortlisted from hundreds of candidates to appear in Parliament after his research about maximising gas extraction from unconventional resources by optmising hydraulic fracturing caught the eye of judges.
    On presenting his research in Parliament, Hadi said: “Fracking is undoubtedly a controversial issue for the UK. On the one hand, energy security and the economic boost achieved by the fracking technology and on the other hand, the limited environmental damage caused, are our favorable goals.
    “My research is a step towards finding a solution which satisfies both sides by introducing advanced and multi-disciplinary engineering workflows.
    “It was a great honour to present my research in Parliament and the feedback has been extremely positive. I’m enjoying my time here at Teesside University – there are so many fantastic opportunities and hopefully my work can make an impact.”
    Hadi’s research at Teesside University is being supervised by Dr Sina Rezaei Gomari and Professor Farhad Nabhani.
