Dr. Bisweswar Ghosh is currently engaged as an Associate Professor of Petroleum Engineering at Khalifa University in Abu Dhabi. For last 8 years he is involved in teaching various PE courses and supervising Graduate students and sponsored research projects.

Earlier (2005-07) he served as a full time PE consultant for Sultan Qaboos University (SQU), Muscat, responsible for developing Petroleum Engineering research and supervision of sponsored projects and graduate research. His focus areas were water and gas shutoff, formation damage and flow assurance.

Prior to that Dr. Ghosh worked as a senior researcher at Institute of Oil & Gas Production Technology, an R&D wing of Oil & Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC) form 1996 to 2005. The research activities were in the area of Water & Gas Shutoff, Well Stimulation, Drilling & Completion Fluid design and flow assurance. During this period the team had successfully completed over 30 large and medium size projects.

Dr. Ghosh commenced his career in the Petroleum Industry with ONGC, India in May 1985 and in next ten years gained rich experience in drilling, field operations and well services. His performance and innovative approaches were recognized through various awards and merit certificates.

Dr. Ghosh has 5 patents in his name, published over 40 peer reviewed journal and conference papers and is the author of a book chapters successfully completed over 50 industrial projects and supervised 15 Graduate thesis. Furthermore, he serves as a reviewer for reputable international journals in the area of petroleum engineering and closely related subjects.

His current research interests are in the area of Chemical & Miscible EOR, Flow Assurance and Formation Damage He also conducts research in the area of renewable energy and fuel cell technology with applications to the oil and gas industry
