Dr Saif Al Ghafri is a young researcher with few years experience in the field of fluid properties and thermodynamics and is the author of many peer-reviewed scientific publications and conference papers. He has worked as a research associate at Imperial College London where he conducted research related to carbon capture and storage(CCS). He is currently a Senior Research Fellow of the Fluid Science and Resources Group at the University of Western Australia (UWA), with a record of experimental excellence, postdoctoral candidate supervision and on-time delivery of industrial projects.He is also an honorary research fellow at Imperial College London.

He has worked on multiple research projects funded by global industry partners such as Shell Development Australia, Chevron Energy Technology Company, the Gas Processors Associations, Schlumberger, Qatar Petroleum, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries and Samsung Heavy Industry. Current research activities include hydrogen economy, Boil-Off-Gas studies for LNG storage and transportation, and measurement and modelling of fluid and thermophysical properties of mixtures relevant to oil and gas production, liquefied natural gas (LNG) processing, carbon dioxide sequestration, enhanced oil recovery, new generation refrigerants, natural gas hydrates and biodiesel production. Dr Al Ghafri maintained on-going collaborations with other top fluid science groups in the world including Imperial College London, Ruhr-University Bochum and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST, USA)
