Dr. Hadi Nasrabadi

Group Leader

hadi.nasrabadi@tamu.edu | Office: RICH 401 Q | Phone: (979) 862 6483

Hadi Nasrabadi joined the Harold Vance Department of Petroleum Engineering at Texas A&M University in January, 2013, where holds the rank of Assistant Professor and is currently the Douglass Von Gonten Faculty Felllow. His research interests include hydrocarbon phase behavior and flow in shale reservoirs, multiscale reservoir simulation using the lattice Boltzmann method and compositional simulation of asphaltene precipitation in porous media.

Hadi received his B.Sc. degree in Civil Engineering from Sharif University of Technology, Tehran, Iran, in 2002, and the Ph.D. in Petroleum Engineering from Imperial College, London, UK, in 2006. In 2007, he joined the Petroleum Engineering Program at Texas A&M University at Qatar (TAMUQ) as a Visiting Assistant Professor.  At TAMUQ, he received multiple research grants from Qatar National Research Fund (under NPRP and UREP programs) and Maersk Oil Research and Technology Centre in Qatar. He taught PETE 323 (Reservoir Models), PETE 401 (Reservoir Simulation), PETE 310 (Reservoir Fluids), PETE 301 (Numerical Methods), and PETE 311 (Petrophysics). He is currently teaching PETE 323 (Resevoir Models) and PETE 647 (Petroleum Thermodynamics).
