- Visiting Scientist
- PhD, Petroleum Engineering / Applied Mathematics, U. Texas Austin, 1974
Ali Dogru received his PhD in Petroleum Engineering / Applied Mathematics from the University of Texas at Austin, in 1974. He spent his early career in Academia until he joined Mobil R&D in 1982. In 1988 he transferred to Saudi Arabia as a “loanee” to Saudi Aramco. In 1996 he started working directly for Saudi Aramco where he is a Saudi Aramco Fellow and in charge of Computational Modeling Technology. Dr. Dogru is also a Visiting Scientist at the Earth Resources Laboratory (ERL) at MIT. Dr. Dogru has published extensively throughout his career and holds several US Patents. Dr. Dogru’s current research is focused on developing the next generation parallel reservoir simulator in order to improve the reservoir models and optimize oil recovery in mature fields.
