Congratulations to Mohammad Eshkalak—Recipient of the 2015 Nico van Wingen Fellowship

Mohammad O. Eshkalak is a Ph.D. candidate in petroleum engineering at The University of Texas at Austin. He is working under the supervision of professors Larry Lake and Kamy Sepehrnoori on developing the next generations of reservoir simulators for unconventional resources. Eshkalak holds a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree in chemical engineering from Tehran Polytechnic and Sharif University of Technology, as well as a master’s degree in petroleum engineering from West Virginia University.

Prior to moving to the United States, Eshkalak worked at an energy company in Tehran. He has published several journal papers and has presented at Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) conferences. After serving as a technical reviewer for some energy related journals, he is now an associate editor for Elsevier’s Journal of Natural Gas Science and Engineering (JNGSE).

Eshkalak’s research direction will be a fundamental approach toward developing fast predictive reservoir simulators that honor the complex physics embedded in unconventional reservoirs.
