Dr. Mohamed Soufiane Jouini earned his PhD in Image and Signal Processing from Bordeaux University France in 2009, following on his Master in Electrical Engineering (2004) and his Master of Sciences in Signal and image processing (2005) from the National Polytechnic Institute of Toulouse, France.

After holding two positions in industry (at Total E&P Research Center and Sagem Security Morpho Research Center) in France, he became Research Associate in Digital Rock Physics at the Petroleum Institute in 2010. There, he later was promoted to Assistant Professor of Mathematics (2014).

Dr. Jouini was awarded “the R&D Bright Finding & Integration Pen” by ADNOC R&D Oil Subcommittee on 2014 for the best integrated research project to the industry within ADNOC group.
He is experienced in numerical simulations to model rock properties based on X-Ray Computed tomography images. His current research projects are focused on image processing and numerical simulations of rock properties from digital images.
