Personal profile

Academic Biography

Foad Faraji is a Lecturer in Engineering in the School of Computing, Engineering and Digital Technologies (SCEDT), Teesside University. 
Before coming back to Teesside to complete his PhD in "gas-condensate reservoir performance modeling" and provide teaching support, Foad was part of quality control team at British Steel Special Profile Skinningrove providing support for the descaling project. Foad completed MEng Mechanical Engineering at Teesside University in 2016 with First-Class Honours. Foad has published in peer-reviewed journals about mathematical modeling, engineering application of Artificial Intelligence for characterization of fluid properties, and mathematical modeling of multiphase flow.

Summary of Research Interests

Ford's main research area focuses on developing new methods using Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning techniques for various engineering applications.  

Ford's expertise and research interests include:-

  • Fluid flow characteriztion in porous media (subsurface energy storage)
  • Engineering application of Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence 
  • Finite Element Methods (Ansys and NX Siemnse)  
  • Fluid Mechanics (Multiphase flow)
