Dr. Younis is an Associate Professor at the McDougall School of Petroleum Engineering at The University of Tulsa. He is the Founder and Director of the Future Reservoir Simulation Systems and Technology (FuRSST) joint-industrial research consortium. His research aims to: 1) develop fundamental advances in computational methods that are foundational to modeling technologies at the systems-scale; 2) advance algorithms and software infrastructure to enable automatic scalability and performance optimization of scientific research software; and 3) leverage data and computation to evaluate, optimize, and design more efficient and prudent operations. Dr. Younis serves as Associate Editor for the SPE Journal, Guest Editor for the Journal of Petroleum Science and Engineering, and Organizing Committee member for the SPE Reservoir Simulation Conference. He holds a PhD degree in Petroleum Engineering and two MS degrees in Scientific Computing & Computational Mathematics and in Petroleum Engineering, all from Stanford University. He earned his B.Eng. degree with Honors in Mechanical Engineering from McGill University in Canada.
