Research interests

My current research focuses on flow visualization and quantification using advanced imaging techniques, including X-ray Tomography, Neutron Source Tomography and Positron Emission Particle Tracking (PEPT), to characterize materials structure and its interaction with fluids (e.g. wettability and capillary pressure), behavior/performance in operando, as well as the time evolution of various engineering processes under in-situ conditions. My research has applications in subsurface hydrology, water resource management, geological carbon storage, reactive flow and contaminant transport, as well as in the analysis of electrochemical devices and catalysts.
