Yalda Barzin, with a Ph. D. and a M. Sc. in petroleum engineering from University of Calgary and IFP School (Institut Francais du Petrole) has extensive experience in various reservoir engineering areas and is a subject matter expert in production data analysis and field development of conventional and unconventional reservoirs. Yalda brings a strong analytical mind that creatively solves real petroleum engineering challenges with a practical approach. Teaching has always been one of Yalda’s greatest strengths garnering her numerous accolades including three teaching excellence awards from the University of Calgary. She has taught numerous training courses and workshops in North and South America, Europe, and the middle east.

Currently, Yalda is a senior reservoir engineer with Susa Energy consulting firm, and serves as the principal advisor to the unconventional projects in the US, Canada, and Argentina.
