Dissertation Topic: “Fluid-Fluid, Fluid-Mineral Interactions and Reactive Transport in Porous Media”.
Thesis: “Microfluidic Visualization of Phase and Flow Phenomena Related to Carbon Dioxide Transport and Usage”.
Honors Thesis: “Two Phase Dynamics in Porous Media with Application to Carbon Sequestration”.
I am ultimately interested in understanding the formation and development of energy resources through experimental and theoretical micro and nanofluidic approaches in reactive transport. Specifically, my research interests aim to understand multiphase reactive transport and fluid-fluid/ fluid-rock interactions in porous media in the context of low environmental impacts energy resources recovery. My current research develops and uses microfluidic visualization platforms to study the mechanisms underlying multiphase fluid transport and surface interactions that dictate energy materials recovery.
My primary teaching goal is to educate students with the fundamental knowledge that is required to meet our society’s rising demands to develop low environmental impacts energy resources. I also aim to help develop their ability and passion towards advancing fundamental engineering knowledge. I am interested in teaching both basic and applied courses on thermodynamics and phase equilibria, fluid mechanics, micro and nanoscale transport phenomena, and general courses in mechanical engineering to develop the next generation of leaders in the field of energy and mechanical engineering.
