Dr. Ishoey has extensive experience in development and commercialization of applied microbiology and biotechnology applications including Microbial Enhance Oil Recovery (MEOR) as the application of biological processes to facilitate, increase, or extend oil production from a reservoir.
He has pioneered the understanding of microbial communities at the single cell level by use of micromanipulation anddeveloped technology to improve recovery performance by mobilizing oil left behind by primary production mechanisms, or secondary water flooding operations.
Dr. Ishoey holds a master’s degree in chemical engineering and a doctorate in biotechnology, both from the Technical University of Denmark. He has also worked as visiting researcher at University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) for a two-year period.
