Experience

  • Research associate

    at Oklahoma State University

    January 2013 - at Present

    Oklahoma

    • Designed and set up a drag reduction flow loop for conducting mechanical degradation experiments • Studied and characterized polymer solutions utilized in hydraulic fracturing and drag reduction applications (rheological characterization) • Improved the drag reduction efficiency of polyacrylamide solutions (slickwater) by developing polyacrylamide/polysaccharide binary polymer solutions • Utilized analytical methods for modeling the drag reduction behavior and mechanical degradation of non-Newtonian fluids such as polymer solutions, cross-linked gels, and concentrated emulsions • Developed test procedures for rheological characterization lab • Developed procedures for preparation and characterization of mono-sized emulsions using microfluidic systems • Prepared course material for “reaction engineering”, “reservoir engineering”, and “production engineering” classes
