Hamid Roshan

Dr Hamid Roshan
BSc, MSc and PhD Petroleum Engineering, UNSW

Research Interests

Hamid’s research interests centre on the experimental and numerical multi-physics modelling of reactive porous media in particular shales at both micro and macro scales. The area extends from physic-chemical characterization to experimental design and constitutive modelling under chemical, thermal, hydraulic and mechanical interactions with a wide range of applications from unconventional resources to environmental topics. Hamid was a Petroleum Engineer before joining the academia where he worked on geological modelling and formation evaluation within several geomechanical projects.
