Dr. Arshad Raza

Post-Doc Researcher, Department of Petroleum Engineering

Dr. Arshad is a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow in the Petroleum Engineering Department at KFUPM, Saudi Arabia. Before joining KFUPM, he has worked as Lecturer (2010-2012), Assistant Professor (2012-2021), and Associate Professor (2021) at the Petroleum Engineering Department of University of Engineering and Technology (UET), Lahore, Pakistan for almost 11 years teaching various petroleum discipline related undergraduate and postgraduate courses. Dr. Arshad received his B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees from Petroleum Engineering Department at UET, Lahore, Pakistan. He obtained his doctoral degree in Petroleum Engineering from Curtin University, Australia, in 2017 on the improved scheme of reservoir characterization for CO2 Sequestration. 

He has been involved in many academic research studies in the USA, China, South Africa, Malaysia, and Australia, in the past 4 years.  He has published 40+ articles in peer-reviewed journals and providing voluntarily reviewer services for many leading scientific ISI journals. Furthermore, he is mainly focusing on Carbon Geo-Sequestration (CGS), Energy Storage, and Engineered Geothermal Systems (EGS).
