Current Research Interests:

Pore-scale network modeling; three-phase flow in porous media; effects of wettability and saturation history on three-phase relative permeability; direct numerical modeling of pore-level flow; CO2 sequestration and leakage, hysteresis in tight gas reservoirs; asphaltene precipitation and deposition; phase change in porous media (solution gas drive); self-consistent dynamic upscaling.
