I received my Bachelor degree with Distinction in Petroleum Engineering from Azerbaijan State Oil Academy in 2009. After graduation, I joined BP Azerbaijan and later SOCAR and worked as Petroleum and Reservoir Engineer for more than 2 years. After very useful work experience, I felt highly motivated to do research and decided to pursue PhD. I currently work as Graduate Teaching Assistant for Prof. Willhite and Dr. Johnson in Petroleum Engineering Laboratory I. In my free time, I enjoy playing soccer, hiking and some other outdoor activities.​
