Interest in engineering

Why did you get into engineering?

I got into engineering because I love to solve problems and design things that make a difference.

What are your research goals?

My research goal is to develop technology to produce hydrocarbon resources from underground more efficiently.

What do people not understand about you do?

Petroleum resources store in the tiny pore space of the matrix rocks not in a pool.

Advice for prospective petroleum engineers

If you’re into engineering, petroleum engineering is for you.
