Research Profile


Fariborz received his master’s degree from Iran University of Science and Technology focused on thermodynamic modelling. Specifically, he was interested in developing models for predicting phase behaviour in mixtures of gases and liquids, which have applications in the oil and gas industry. His research involved studying the fundamental principles of thermodynamics, as well as various equations of state (EoSs) and models that are commonly used in the field. He used computer software (MATLAB and Python) to model the behaviour of different mixtures under different conditions, and is comparing his results to experimental data to validate his models.

Fariborz has extensive experience, spanning over a decade, in thermodynamic modelling of separation processes pertaining to the oil and gas industry, including gas sweetening and wax deposition. He is proficient in coding and enjoys leveraging his expertise to contribute to advancements in thermodynamics within the industry.
