I study the motions of fluids underground and how they shape our natural and engineered environments. In pursuit of such knowledge,
I pay special attention to the roles of fluid mechanical instability,
phase transitions, chemical reactions and fluid-solid interactions.
My approach is often mathematical and computational and
my primary tools are phase-field modeling and high-resolution numerical simulations. However, my work benefits tremendously
from collaborations with experimentalists and field-going scientists.
My work is applied to a wide range of geoscience problems,
including gas hydrate systems, geologic carbon sequestration, hydrology and volcanic systems.
In Spring 2021, I will start as an assistant professor in the department of Mechanical and Civil Engineering at California Institute of Technology. If you are interested in working with me, I encourage you to get in touch.
