Dr. Mohammad Sarim Jamal

Post-Doc Researcher, Department of Petroleum Engineering

Dr. Jamal is a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow in Department of Petroleum Engineering. He worked as a Lecturer-B in the Petroleum Engineering department from 2014-2019 during which he received his Ph.D.  As part of his Ph.D. he developed novel methods to efficiently model flow and transport in Karst reservoirs and aquifers. He has teaching experience in Reservoir Simulation and Reservoir Description.
