Visiting Student

Research Description

Rizwan is a PhD Candidate in Petroleum Engineering Department at KFUPM. My research covers the fields of Geophysics, Geomechanics, Reservoir Modelling and Simulation and recently having interest in Machine learning. Currently, I am analyzing the acoustic emissions recorded during the laboratory experiments to map the fracture propagation. The objective is to analyze and interpret the data and to learn more about the interactions between fluid injections, stresses and rock fabric. Also, I will apply methods in Bayesian moment tensor inversion to the data set during my stay in MIT.
