Dr Mohammed Abdul Qadeer Siddiqui

Minerals and Energy Resources

Mohammed's research focus is on the development of the fundamental constitutive theories to characterize, understand and predict complex multi-physics phenomena in clay-rich deformable porous media e.g. shales. He uses theoretical, experimental and numerical techniques to understand complex coupled processes at multi-scales. Such constitutive theoretical exposition can be useful in a wide range of engineering-scale applications such as shale water loss, wellbore instability, nuclear disposal, and CO2 storage. Mohammed holds a Ph.D. in Minerals and Energy Resources Engineering (Petroleum Engg.) from UNSW Sydney and Masters and Bachelors degrees in Petroleum Engg. from King Fahd University of Petroleum & Minerals (KFUPM), Saudi Arabia.
