Dr Hamid Roshan graduated with a PhD in Petroleum Geomechanics Engineering from the School of Petroleum Engineering at UNSW Sydney in 2012 followed by 3.5 years postdoc training in the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering. He was later appointed in UNSW School of Minerals and Energy Resources Engineering in 2016. Prior to his PhD study, Hamid worked with the Underground Gas Storage Company where he gained invaluable industry experience and knowledge of state-of-the-art technologies in underground gas storage including successful gas storage project in Sarajeh field. Currently, Dr Roshan and his team work on multiphysics geomechanics and rock characterization including theoretical, numerical and experimental developments with applications in Mining, Civil and Petroleum Engineering. Dr Roshan team has also developed and patented field-scale downhole logging tools for stress - mechanical property measurements as well as software solution for mining industry. Since 2017, Dr Roshan has been developing the advanced multiphysics laboratory (GeoEngineering Research Lab: https://www.georesearch-lab.com/) in UNSW where the next generation of equipment for coupled geomechanics - rock characterization has been designed and built offering state-of-the-art academic and technical services to Mining, Civil and Petroleum sectors.
