Welcome to EBF 200!

Hello, my name is Farid Tayari, and I will be the instructor of the course EME 460, Geo-resources Evaluation and Investment Analysis.

I am currently working as a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Energy and Mineral Engineering at Penn State University. I hold a Ph.D. degree in Energy Management and Policy, which is an interdisciplinary major between economics and engineering, from Penn State University. I also have an MBA from the University of Tehran, and a Bachelor’s of science in Chemical Engineering from Sharif University.

I have years of research and work experience in economic assessment of energy projects, especially in the field of oil, gas, and renewables. I’m also experienced in energy economics, policy analysis, mathematical modeling, quantitative simulation, and programming.
