Scientific Software Developer
Mehran has a Ph.D. in the field of reservoir engineering from the University of Texas at Austin, an M.Sc. in petroleum engineering from The University of Tulsa, OK, and a B.Sc. in drilling engineering from the Petroleum University of Technology in Iran. His background is in development of computational codes for simulation of multi-phase flow in porous media and wellbore, and drillstring mechanics/dynamics in extended-reach wells.
Prior to Enthought, Mehran was a postdoctoral research fellow at UT Austin with focus on application of neural networks in solving partial differential equations. He also interned with Kinder Morgan, BHP, and the Bureau of Economic Geology where he developed various simulation models.
Mehran is currently interested in development of information retrieval systems using natural language processing techniques. In addition to this, he enjoys hiking, lifting weights, cooking, and reading about history and philosophy.
