Mutasim Sami Osman

Lecturer, Department of Geosciences

From Sept. 2015 till the present day, Mutasim has been lecturing on Geosciences at CPG, KFUPM. teaching Principles of Geology Lab and Structural Geology Course as well as participating in the Field Geology Course. Between Jun. 2014-15 he was a Research Assistant and had participated in several projects in sedimentology, stratigraphy and digital modeling, geological field investigation, stratigraphic concepts, core description, porosity, and permeability measurements, SEM, XRD analysis and “acquisition, processing, and interpretation of LiDAR data”.

Educational Qualification

  • M.Sc., Geology, KFUPM, KSA, 2014.
  • Diploma, Computer Applications, Aldanga, Sudan. 2010.
  • B.S. (Hons.), Petroleum Geology, University of Khartoum, Sudan, 2009.

Research Interests

Although all Earth Sciences related research are capturing my interest, some are more closely to my heart those are, in random order:

Sedimentology, Structural Geology and Geomechanics, Digital Outcrop Modelling and GIS Applications in Geology.
