Dr. Kashfi is esteemed as a certified petroleum geologist, scholar and consultant celebrating more than 50 years of innovation in the global energy industry. Born in Tehran, he was raised during the era of British Petroleum control of Iranian oil and gas reserves, and was a high school student during the country's initial push to nationalize their oil reserves. Inspired to make a difference in his country's developing oil industry, he decided to pursue a career in geology. Dr. Kashfi subsequently earned a Bachelor of Science at the University of Tehran in 1962 before enlisting in the Iranian military service, obtaining a Gold Cup from His Majesty Mohammed Reza Shah Pahlavi for his exemplary work.
In late 1964, Dr. Kashfi relocated to the United States to continue his education, obtaining a Master of Science from Michigan State University in 1967. He later completed doctoral coursework at the University of Tennessee. Serving as a teaching assistant at the aforementioned university from 1967 until 1971, he graduated with a Doctor of Philosophy and returned to Iran later that same year. At this time, Dr. Kashfi joined the National Iran Oil Company as a senior geologist and fulfilled his dreams of helping to grow the Iranian energy industry.
Dr. Kashfi would remain active with National Iran Oil Company for the next seven years, departing to become an associate professor and the chairman of the geology department at Pahlavi University, at which he was assigned to train young geologists for the growing National Iranian Oil Company and would serve until the end of the 1979 academic year. He returned to petroleum geology in 1980 as an exploration manager for the Petroleum Corporation of Jamaica, based out of Kingston, followed by a post as the chief petroleum geologist for the Navajo Nation from 1982 until 1984, when he transitioned to consulting. Since 1984, Dr. Kashfi has excelled as a consultant geologist for Associated Resources, Inc., and a petroleum consultant for Kashex International, leveraging decades of experience in the oil and gas industry throughout the world.
