Pooya Hadian, mentee in the 2019 Energy Minerals Resources program in WA (Curtin University)

Pooya Hadian received his bachelor of mineral exploration and masters of petroleum exploration from Amirkabir University of Technology, Iran. After graduation, he was focused on geoscientific approach to evaluate mineral and petroleum resources. He was involved in geochemical and geostatistical studies in a number of copper and gold exploration projects before shifting to geophysical approach after finishing his masters. He has 7 years’ experience in seismic data acquisition, imaging and interpretation in several 2D and 3D seismic projects. His research interest are reservoir characterization and reducing environmental footprints. He has published a number of papers and given presentation as a results of research on pore pressure prediction from seismic data, and enhancing seismic data imaging techniques.

He is currently working towards a PhD at the Curtin University with a APA scholarship. With several successful years of experience in seismic data processing and interpretation and a number of scientific research projects, his field of research is now focused on assessing the effect of CO2 injected in CCS project on caprocks. He has been involved in project aiming to study the feasibly of carbon storage in South West Hub through experimental studies and geochemical modelling. Pooya is also keen to engage in hydrocarbon exploration activities with a sustainable approach as he has high regard toward the our planet ecology as a result of his recent studies.
