We’re very excited to announce that the data analytics team we’ve built at Ruths.ai is growing to help us deliver even more capabilities with Petro.ai. 

Brandon Amos joined as a Senior Data Analyst, and has over six years of experience consulting in upstream oil and gas at QRI and Slalom. He worked on a range of projects with national oil companies on fields in Kuwait, Colombia, and Mexico where he delivered analytics helping clients understand the value of their assets by highlighting key areas of performance optimization in reservoir engineering, drilling, and operational geology. Brandon received his BA in Economics and BA in Geology from the University of Colorado at Boulder.

He says, “I am excited when I see people using the products I have built to easily answer once difficult questions.” He loves tackling challenges and says, “One wild dream on my bucket list is to visit Svalbard, an island between Norway and the North Pole, to go hang out with Polar Bears.”

Omar Ali joined as a Data Analyst after completing his BS in Mathematical Biology and MS in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Houston. His work as a student involved statistical analyses and Multiphysics simulations for various science and engineering problems. He also has four years of energy industry experience which involved performance analysis, failure rate prediction, and predictive maintenance at NOV and then EDP Renewables. Over the years, Omar has developed a strong passion for delivering analytics solutions to help drive decision-making. When not at work, Omar enjoys backpacking, running, and playing sand volleyball.

The addition of Brandon and Omar adds critical capacity to our analytics team as they continue developing next generation O&G workflows.
