Ekarit Panacharoensawad, Ph.D.
Ekarit Panacharoensawad received a Ph.D. (2012) in Petroleum Engineering in from The University of Tulsa. His Ph.D. research topic was "Wax Deposition under Two-Phase Oil-Water Flowing Conditions". He received a M.S. degree (2007) in Petrochemical Engineering from the Petroleum and Petrochemical College, Chulalongkorn University, Thailand, and a B.S. degree (2005) in Physics with 1st class honors from Chulalongkorn University. He spent a year at the University of Michigan with Professor H. Scott Fogler's group while working on his M.S. to study the effect of composition on n-alkane deposition by using a cold finger apparatus. The refereed publications contributed by his M.S. are Energy and Fuels 22 (1), pp. 545-555 (2008) and Energy and Fuel 23 (12), pp. 6040-6047 (2009).
Ekarit joined The University of Tulsa in May 2012 as a Research Associate in TU's Paraffin Deposition Projects. His research interests are macroscopic and microscopic studies of wax deposition and crystallization under various flow conditions.
