My research interests focus on the prediction, quantification, and measurement of flow and transport processes in heterogeneous geological porous media, using field, experimental, mathematical and numerical techniques.
I lead the Novel Reservoir Monitoring, Modelling and Simulation (NORMS) Group, a multidisciplinary collective of geoscientists, applied mathematicians, engineers, and experimental and computational physicists.
The group develops and applies new methods to monitor and model flow and transport in subsurface reservoirs. Applications of the research are numerous and include subsurface energy storage, geothermal energy, mineral resources, groundwater flow, magma reservoirs and volcanic systems.
