Research Scientist at the Bureau of Economic Geology
The University of Texas at Austin
Farzam Javadpour holds a bachelor’s degree with distinction in petroleum engineering Abadan Institute of Technology and master’s and PhD degrees in chemical and petroleum engineering, respectively, from the University of Calgary. He has worked as reservoir engineer in industry and is currently working as a research scientist at the Jackson School of Geosciences (University of Texas at Austin), where he is leading research works on novel techniques of reserve and permeability estimations and liquid and gas flow modeling for shale gas system. Javadpour is also studying fundamentals of nanoparticle transport in porous media for EOR and reservoir-engineering applications. He teaches advanced-level courses on topics including shale-gas characterization and production and CO2 injection in geological systems at the University of Texas at Austin.
His research interest includes transport in porous media. Natural rocks are among the most fascinating and complicated porous systems. current research includes gas and liquid flow in unconventional shale reservoirs and the use of engineered nanoparticles for Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) and reservoir characterization applications
