Masdar Institute Student Highlights Research in Sustainability at Talent Management Oil & Gas Conference 2013

Emirati Member of YFEL Outreach Initiative Iman Ustadi Shares Her Experience at Feature-Filled Sustainable Campus

Abu Dhabi-UAE: 02 MAY, 2013 – Masdar Institute of Science and Technology, an independent, research-driven graduate-level university focused on advanced energy and sustainable technologies, today announced one of its students highlighted her research and academic experience in the area of sustainability and renewable energy during the Talent Management Oil & Gas Conference 2013 in Abu Dhabi.

Iman Ibrahim Ustadi, a Master's student in the Engineering Systems and Management program at Masdar Institute, shared her experience with delegates on Future Talent Day at the second annual Talent Management Oil & Gas Conference. Held on 22 April, the Future Talent Day offered an opportunity for UAE-based university students interested in a career in the oil, gas and petrochemical sectors to network with human resource professionals in the industry. In return, it was a chance for the HR professionals to identify the potential new talent entering the industry and learn about their career goals and expectations. The Future Talent Day was part of the Conference that ran from 22-25 April in Abu Dhabi.

Iman Ustadi is also a member of the Young Future Energy Leaders (YFEL), a Masdar Institute outreach initiative. During the presentation at the conference, she also spoke about her research in the area of carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) – one of the major promising technologies to preserve the environment. She additionally highlighted the sustainable features at the campus and how Masdar Institute is driving human capital development in clean energy and advanced technology.

CCS can be used for enhanced oil recovery in Abu Dhabi, as well as for mitigating greenhouse gas emissions in the UAE. Iman's research also focuses on exploring the natural gas (NG) market in the UAE comparing it with other international markets and evaluating the effect of the CCS deployment on the developments and demands of the natural gas market.

Iman Ustadi said: “Masdar Institute's outreach initiatives such as the YFEL facilitate involvement of UAE's young people with professionals at global forums such as this event, while promoting industry-academia collaboration. The Future Talent Day offered an opportunity for the youth to engage in discussions about the future of energy, find solutions for the challenges of climate change and become proud leaders, representatives and advocates in future energy.

“At Masdar Institute, my research helps identify the challenges associated with the integration process in CCS, with full analysis, quantification and suggestion of solutions. It also includes a techno-economic evaluation for the deployment of carbon capture technology on Natural Gas Combined Cycle (NGCC) power plants. I thank the UAE's wise leadership for providing a platform for myself and other students to enhance our talents. I am sure my presentation adequately informed the conference delegates about the degree of advanced research that is undertaken at Masdar Institute and its contribution to clean energy, regionally and globally.”

Iman Ustadi hopes for better industry-academia collaboration that will ensure easier access to data and resources to students. The HR professionals attending the event were receptive to her suggestions and offered tips on ways to approach the industry positively.

Sam McManus, Conference Director, IIR Middle East, said: “The Future Talent Day was organized for the first time this year to run concurrently with the Talent Management Oil & Gas Conference in Abu Dhabi. A new platform, the event offered an ideal opportunity to showcase talents to oil and gas industry professionals and create partnerships for the future. We are delighted Masdar Institute participated in the event by sending a student and we believe Iman Ustadi's presentation proved beneficial to participating companies to learn about the expectations of talented future professionals.”

Serving as a key pillar of innovation and human capital, Masdar Institute remains fundamental to Masdar's core objectives of developing Abu Dhabi's knowledge economy and finding solutions to humanity's toughest challenges such as climate change.

Established as an on-going collaboration with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Masdar Institute integrates theory and practice to incubate a culture of innovation and entrepreneurship, working to develop the critical thinkers and leaders of tomorrow.  With its world-class faculty and top-tier students, the Institute is committed to finding solutions to the challenges of clean energy and climate change through education and research.
