About

My current research at the Bureau of Economic Geology addresses the influence of geologic heterogeneity at cm-to-m scale on subsurface fluid flow of carbon dioxide. Specifically, I focus on numerical simulation of fluid flow using both traditional (Darcy) flow simulators as well as Invasion Percolation (IP) methods, with an emphasis on the transition between viscous-dominated and buoyancy/capillary-dominated flow.
