Personal profile

Academic Biography

Dr Gomari completed his MSc in Petroleum Engineering in 2003 from NTNU, Norway followed by his PhD at the University of Stavanger in 2006. He has gained 12 years of industrial experiences with the National Iranian Oil Company, and Statoil ASA ( Equinor ) before joining Teesside University as Senior Lecturer. From the time he has joined academia, he established his core analysis lab where it has been used by several PhD, and MSc students to complete their research on advanced oil recovery and porous media subjects. He has been as director of study for several PhD students, published several high impact factor journal papers, and has acted as assessor for several PhD and MSc thesis. He has awarded a fund from Royal Academy of Engineering (RAE) in 2016  to collaborate with Brazilian institutes on the subject of novel techniques on wettability quantification of challenging oil and gas reservoirs. His concern about environmental protection in oil and gas industry led him to propose several projects on wastewater treatments and management, CO2 capture and reuse as well as application of biomaterials. Currently he is chartered engineer of Energy Institute, Editor in Chief for Oil, Gas and Petrochemical Science, member of SPE and EAGE associations, and course leader for MSc Petroleum Engineering at Teesside University
