Ph.D - Theoretical Geomchemistry, 2012

ETH Zurich, Switzerland

MS - Geology/Petrology, 2008

University of Cologne, Germany

Ferdinand received his M.Sc. (Diplom) in Geology/Petrology from the University of Cologne, Germany, in 2008. He received his PhD in theoretical geochemistry from ETH Zurich, Switzerland in 2012. His PhD work entitled "Geothermal electrolyte solutions: thermodynamic model and computational fitting framework development" was performed as part of a collaboration between the Fluids and Mineral Deposits Group at ETH Zurich, Switzerland, and the Laboratory for Nuclear Waste Management at Paul Scherrer Institut, Switzerland. His current research deals with the experimental investigation of multiphase flow properties in porous media in the framework of Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS).

Dr. Charlotte Garing

Post-Doctoral Researcher

650-736-7416

Ph.D - Geosciences, 2011

University of Montpellier, France

MS - Environmental Engineering, 2005

INP Toulouse, France

Charlotte received her Ph.D in Geosciences from the University of Montpellier in 2011. Her thesis focused on field characterization and laboratory investigation of reactive transport in carbonates in the context of saltwater intrusion and CO2 storage, using geophysical, geochemical, petrophysical and X-ray microtomography imagery techniques. She was then involved in CO2 leakage remediation in fractured and porous media as a postdoctoral researcher at CNRS Montpellier, France. Her current research focuses on experimental investigation of residual trapping of CO2 in porous media.
