Dr. Deepjyoti Mech is currently working as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Petroleum Engineering Department at Presidency University, Bengaluru, India. He obtained Ph.D. in Petroleum Engineering from IIT Madras, M.Tech in Petroleum Exploration and Production and B.E in Mechanical Engineering from Dibrugarh University, respectively. He worked and successfully executed the Gas Authority of India Limited (GAIL) project within time bound (2013-2016) during his Ph.D. tenure for gas storage and transportation purpose using gas hydrates, which is currently an emerging unconventional technique for oil and gas industries. He published 12 research articles in international journals and conferences of international repute and have more than 100 citations, 7 h-index and 5 i10-index till present (Google Scholar). He holds patent both in national and international platform. His research interest lies mainly in the field of gas hydrates, enhanced oil recovery, drilling fluids, flow assurance and hydrocarbon production for upstream oil and gas engineering.
