Kareem Aboayanah is working on his PhD in Civil Engineering with Prof. Grasselli at the University of Toronto. He received his MASc from Politecnico di Torino, Italy, in 2019, and a BASc from Suez University, Egypt, in 2012, both in petroleum engineering. Kareem has more than 2 years of experience in heavy-oil reservoirs stimulation. His research interests include: THM-coupled processes in rock mechanics and induced seismicity.
Invited talk on "Thermo-hydro-mechanical coupled modelling framework in the combined finite-discrete element method (FDEM-THM): implementation and application" as part of the Geological Controls and Fracture Mechanics - Considerations for the Geological Storage of Carbon Dioxide, Hydrogen, Methane and Compressed Air.
Poster presented at GeoConvention 2020 virtual conference titled "Geomechanical assessment of potential gas leak pathways: a numerical modeling study on caprock integrity of natural gas storage site"
