Research Interests

Professor Blunt's research interests are in multiphase flow in porous media with applications to oil and gas recovery, geological carbon storage and contaminant transport and clean-up in polluted aquifers. He performs experimental, theoretical and numerical research into many aspects of flow and transport in porous systems, including pore-scale modelling of displacement processes, and large-scale simulation using streamline-based methods. He is on the editorial boards of Transport in Porous Media, Water Resources Research and Advances in Water Resources. He was the Chair of the 2006 Gordon Conference on Flow in Permeable Media. He has over 200 scientific publications.
