Anahita Abadpour - Exploration Production - Total

Anahita Abadpour - Specialist in Optimization Method & Ensemble Method

After graduating in Engineering at the Sharif University of Technology (Iran), Anahita completed her PhD at the National Polytechnic Institute of Lorraine in 2008, with her thesis on “Proposing semi-analytical asymptotic solutions for gas injection EOR problems”.

She joined Total in 2009 as a Research Reservoir Engineer. She is now a Senior Reservoir engineer with high R&D orientations, specialized in optimization methods, focused on data assimilation with ensemble based methods for reservoir history matching and uncertainty assessments.

In February 2017, she was appointed Assisted History Matching Specialist. In charge of the EnHM tool, she is responsible for its development inside the Sismage-CIG solution, support for operational field studies, specification and follow-up of R&D activities.
