Hadi Saboorian Jooybari joined the Department of Chemical and Petroleum Engineering at the University of Calgary in September 2017 to pursue his PhD studies. Hadi obtained his BSc and MSc degrees in Petroleum Engineering both from Petroleum University of Technology (PUT), Iran.

Before joining the University of Calgary, Hadi was a senior reservoir engineer in the Reservoir Studies Division of the Petroleum Engineering Department at National Iranian South Oil Company (NISOC). He joined NISOC in 2007 as a reservoir engineer and during nearly a decade of his career in NISOC, he was involved in a wide range of projects including rock and fluid analysis, rock typing, PVT phase behavior studies, multidisciplinary static and dynamic reservoir characterization, preliminary to integrated reservoir studies, reserves estimation, reservoir simulation, and Master Development Planning (MDP).

Hadi’s current research interests include unconventional resources, transport in porous and fractured media, mathematical modeling, recovery mechanisms of fractured reservoirs, production-data analysis, phase behavior modeling, enhanced oil recovery, tight reservoirs, formation damage, and reservoir characterization and simulation.
