Dr. Sadoon Morad is the ADOC Chaired Professor at the Petroleum Institute in Abu Dhabi.Dr. Morad has given courses and performed consultant work and research collaboration with numerous oil companies around the world. His previous achievements include the development of conceptual models to predict the impact of diagenetic alterations on distribution of reservoir quality within sequence stratigraphy. He has published about 70 papers in international journals, currently serves as Associate Editor for Journal of Sedimentary Research and has edited three Special Publications in total.
