Educational Background

Doctor of Philosophy Chemical and Petroleum Engineering, University of Calgary, 2011

Master of Science Mechanical Engineering, University of Tehran, 2004


Dr. Hejazi received B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering and Ph.D. in Chemical and Petroleum Engineering in 2011. He joined the faculty of the Schulich School of Engineering at the University in 2013 after working in industry on the development of oil recovery techniques from naturally fractured heavy oil reservoirs.

Dr. Hejazi leads "Interfacial Flows and Porous Media" laboratory at the University of Calgary and his research focus includes interfacial flows, liquid-solid interactions, soft matter, and porous media science especially with applications in health, energy, and environment systems. In particular, he uses experiments, theory, and simulations in hydrodynamic instabilities, wetting and evaporation dynamics, reactive flow in porous media, microfluidics and HPHT visual micromodels, multiphase flow in reservoir rocks, enhanced oil production, liquid-cooling of electronics, and design of novel interfacial materials for 3D printing.
