Mr Nima Sarmadi,
Nima is a PhD student at the University of Warwick's School of Engineering. He has a background in Civil Geotechnical Engineering. He completed a bachelor of science of Civil Engineering at the Amirkabir University of Technology (Tehran Polytechnic), a well-renowned university in Iran, in 2016. Afterward, he pursued his studies at MSc level in the field of Geotechnical Engineering at the University of Tehran. His master thesis was focused on the assessment of seismic site effects of alluvial valleys, one of the highly controversial issues in the field of Geotechnical Earthquake Engineering. His current research, under the supervision of Dr. Mohaddeseh Mousavi-Nezhad, aims to identify the controls on fracture propagation through faults in order to carry out sealing capacity of faults in fractured reservoirs. The study contains developing analytical and numerical models for fracture propagation in anisotropic and heterogeneous media.

Engineers generally do care about financial aspects of technical processes, and I, as a geotechnical engineer, also care about the environment and try to preserve it for future generations. I am currently doing research on identifying the controlling parameters of crack propagation in petroleum reservoirs during the process of hydraulic fracturing which is the main technique for the extraction of fossil fuels.
