Assistant Professor of Petroleum Engineering 

Dr. Hosseini is an assistant professor of petroleum engineering at UTPB. He earned his B.S. and M.S. in petroleum engineering from the University of Kansas in Lawrence Kansas and his Ph.D. in Petroleum engineering from Colorado School of Mines in Golden Colorado. He also has an MSc in International Business from the University of Colorado in Denver, Colorado.

His research focuses on reservoir engineering and production aspects of the petroleum engineering. His current research focus is related to Food, Energy, and Water systems (FEW). Along this concept, flared gas and produced water treatment in the Permian Basin are areas of investigation. Both these topics are being studied by multi-disciplinary teams at UTPB. Enhanced oil recovery methods (heavy oils) is of interest to him. He has been involved in the field as a frac engineer (Halliburton), as a reservoir engineer (NIOC), and research intern at Marathon Oil Company.
