Mineral and Energy Resources Engineering

Peyman Mostaghimi is an Associate Professor in Minerals and Energy Resources at UNSW Sydney. He joined UNSW in 2014. Prior to this, he was a postdoctoral researcher at Imperial College London where he conducted research on multiphase flow and transport in porous media. He obtained his PhD from Imperial College London and holds an MSc in Mechanical Engineering with specialty in Fluid Mechanics and dual BSc degrees in Mechanical and Chemical (Reservoir) Engineering from Sharif University of Technology. A/Prof Mostaghimi has a broad range of research interests in computational fluid dynamics, natural gas, subsurface reservoir simulation, pore-scale modelling of displacement processes and modelling flow and transport in porous media with applications to oil and gas recovery, subsurface hydrology and environmental studies. A/Prof Mostaghimi is an active member of SPE (Society of Petroleum Engineers), InterPore (International Society for Porous Media), AGU (American Geophysical Union) and IAMG (International Association for Mathematical Geosciences). He is a recipient of several international awards and is a Council Member for the International Society for Porous Media and an Associate Editor for the Journal of Petroleum Science and Engineering.
