EXPERIENCE

Virginia Tech Research Assistant

Aug 2019 – present Blacksburg, VA

• Developed a state-of-the-art ensemble clustering-regression model to group data into clusters using GMM to mitigate the class confusion problem and then use ANN for class label prediction. validation.

• Applied deep learning, rigid regression and random forest for subsurface temperature prediction using geological setting.

• Currently performing time-series analysis for hydrocarbon production rate and crude oil price estimation using classic time series models in addition to LSTM Recurrent Neural Networks. Texas Tech University Ph.D. Candidate & Researcher Aug 2015– Aug 2019 Lubbock, TX

• Developed two software packages for oil & gas industry containing 21,000 lines of code in C++ and Python coupled with a C# GUI. OpenMp parallelism techniques have been applied to enhance the performance (by nearly 5 times). Advanced numerical methods were programmed (e.g., Dorman Prince, Levenberg-Marquardt optimization algorithm, etc.).

• Applied Self-Organizing Map (SOM) for clustering and developed sets of Generic-Algorithm-Based Correlations for CO2 solubility estimation in deep aquifers for sequestration applications.

• Developed a simulation tool to read through real-time capacitance censor data in pipe and fit time-series models to predict various characteristics of the flow regime.

Azad University Machine Learning Researcher

Set 2012 – Aug 2014 Tehran, Iran

• Collaborated in a research project to estimate compressibility factor in gas systems. A LS-SVM model was developed which resulted in higher accuracy in compare to all other physics-based methods.

• The developed model in the previous study was then used to predict Frictional Pressure Loss in Inclined Annuli in a separate research effort and resulted in a state-of-the-art performance (R2 = 0.95, ARD = -1.68%)
