Dr. Mohammad Alsuwaidi has more than 10 years of experience in the field of carbonate sedimentary geology in both industry and academia. He earned his PhD in Geology from Colorado School of Mines in 2015, Professional Masters, Petroleum Reservoir Systems from Colorado School of Mines in 2013, and Bachelor of Science in Petroleum Geosciences from the Petroleum Institute, Abu Dhabi in 2009. Dr. Mohammad worked as a Geologist and a researcher in ADNOC Onshore between 2009-2016 in Operations and in the Research and Development (R&D) Divisions. Dr. Mohammad is an active member of SPE, EAGE, SEPM and AAPG professional societies.

Current Research Projects:
- Faculty Startup Fund (Principal Investigator): Reservoir rock characterization of Cretaceous carbonates (FSU-2018-15), Project objectives: 1) Using a variety of petrographical, geochemical, petrophysical approaches to identify and constrain the reservoir parameters causing the poor quality 2)Modelling the distribution and burial diagenesis evolution of micropores in tight carbonates. Project is in collaboration with ADNOC.
- CIRA Project (Co-Investigator): Reservoir Characterization: Critical Assessment of Regional Stratigraphy, and the Origin and Evolution of Microporosity. Tasks involved in: 1) Sedimentology, geochemistry, and sequence stratigraphy of the Hawar Member, 2) Origin and evolution of microporosity in carbonate reservoirs
- Leading prior PhD continuation project on“Microporosity Characterization of the Aptian Thamama A0 Zone in Abu Dhabi in Bab Basin”, currently comparing crest versus flanks pore architecture differences.
- Completed supervising three MSc students, and 8 senior students
