Dr. Mohsen Ahmadian is a Project Manager and Scientist at the Bureau of Economic Geology at The University of Texas/Austin.  Drawing on over 20 years of experience in nanotechnology, semiconductor, and biotech industries, he has been in charge of managing two portfolios of cutting edge Nanosensor research programs for the Advanced Energy Consortium (AEC) since 2010.  These portfolio have been focused on synthesis and characterization of passive, active or reactive nano and micron-size particles as contrast agents, or sensors with either selective oil-seeking properties for enhanced oil recovery, or for the remote "illumination" of resources in subsurface reservoirs. He has also been leading the technology demonstration for three application development efforts for the AEC, including a large scale pilot test for hydraulic fracture mapping with electromagnetic contrast agents.
