Research

I am interested in modeling flow and transport in natural porous media. Application areas include reservoir simulation and subsurface CO2 sequestration. Current research activities include: (1) modeling unstable miscible and immiscible flows in heterogeneous formations, (2) developing multiscale formulations and scalable linear/nonlinear solution algorithms for multiphase flow in large-scale subsurface systems, and (3) developing stochastic approaches for quantifying the uncertainty associated with predictions of subsurface flow performance.

Teaching

I teach courses on multiphase flow in porous media and numerical reservoir simulation.
