Asst. Prof. Dr. Yousef Tamsilian is an Assistant Professor at Petroleum, Gas & Petrochemical Engineering (PGP) Department, Shahid Chamran University of Ahvaz (SCU) where is one of the comprehensive universities in Iran. Meanwhile, He leads a knowledge-based enterprise on high technological materials production including smart nanomaterial, superabsorber, heat transfer nanofluids, etc. He has got Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from Sharif University of Technology, having some technical courses at POLYMAT of University of the Basque, BASF Co., and Texas Tech University. His M.Sc. and Ph.D. theses were about modeling and experimental study of rheological behavior of smart polymeric core-shell nanostructure fluids during the chemical EOR process. Over ten years of professional academic and industrial experiences in the universities and oil & gas industries, he has run more than 30 projects including one national Iranian project, published more than 35 papers in international and national journals and conferences and five books subjected to OpenFOAM CFD, thermodynamic, nanomaterial, and molecular dynamic. He also has two US. Patents and two Iranian Patents having EOR principles to proceed the edge of knowledge for chemical phased-behavior.
Asst. Prof. Dr. Yousef Tamsilian Considering his excited background in smart nanostructured materials, chemical enhanced oil recovery, polymerization engineering, modeling of polymer and chemical processes, his current research interests have evolved into two principal themes: 1. Technology Commercialization: Smart chemicals for CEOR; O&G superhydrophobic absorber; 2. Project Development: Feasibility study & basic design of flare/furnace gas recovery, wastewater treatment, chemical production.
