Sami was born and raised in Houston, TX and currently works as an Integration and Governance Manager in Shell’s Renewables and Energy Solutions organization, developing renewables projects across the US. Before this role, Sami formed and led a wildly popular startup team within Shell, applying cutting-edge AI, analytics, and self-driving car principles to well navigation — resulting in seven patents.
Sami’s background is in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin, and he is simultaneously pursuing his MBA from the Yale School of Management, with a focus on sustainability. Outside of work, Sami enjoys chess, gardening, and building home science projects (particularly those with an energy flair!).
Sami is excited to align HREG with the Houston Climate Action Plan and allow HREG to drive home the commitment from the city and keep Houston as the Energy Capital of the World! Sami’s door is always open to answer any questions about being a part of HREG and growing the mission.
