June 1981 B.S. Chemical Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology
May 1987 Ph.D., Chemical Engineering, University of Houston, Houston, TX
1987-1989 Post-Doctoral Fellow, Petroleum Engineering, Stanford University,
Developed a strong oil and gas enhanced oil recovery and reservoir
engineering research program at the University of Utah. Important milestone in
this development was the establishment of the Petroleum Research Center as one
of the State Centers of Excellence.
Established a computational component with focus on fractured reservoirs
and discrete-fracture models; our group developed a series of multiphase,
finite element discrete-fracture models as an alternative to dual-porosity
models. These models will help better understand and manage fractured
Graduated 17 Ph.D. students and six Masters students; currently advising
