Mrs Maria Gonzalez Perdomo

Senior Lecturer

Australian School of Petroleum & Energy Resources

Faculty of Engineering, Computer and Mathematical Sciences

Eligible to supervise Masters and PhD, but is currently at capacity - email supervisor to discuss availability.


Mary Gonzalez is the Director of Teaching and the Petroleum Engineering program co-ordinator for ASPER at the University of Adelaide, Australia.
She joined the Australian School of Petroleum and Energy Resources in 2009 after several years of experience in the oil and gas industry. Most recently as the head of the South Australian regional office for Advanced Well Technologies (AWT), where she provided practical Petroleum Engineering Consultancy Services and Solutions in the areas of Subsurface and Production Engineering. Before that, Mary worked for PDVSA E&P and PDVSA Intevep (Technological Division of National Venezuelan Oil Co) in several production, facilities, and reservoir engineering roles.
In her career, she has been exposed to a vast diversity of projects, clients, and environments.
She has excellent abilities in the areas of leadership, mentoring, supervision, consulting and business objectives.
Mary is an active member of the Society of Petroleum Engineers where she has an active role in the community education committee.
Mary serves as reviewer for several Elsevier Journals, and APPEA.
