Dinesh Herath


I am currently enrolled in Master of Engineering in Oil and Gas. I graduated from University of Moratuwa, Sri Lanka, with B.Sc. (Hons) in mechanical engineering. My research focuses on Hydrate formation in natural gas pipelines and Winterization requirements to avoid hydrate formation in North harsh environments, under the supervision of Dr. Faisal Khan.



Research interest

Computational Fluid Dynamics, Probabilistic risk assessment, Winterization
