Postdoctoral Research Assistant in the Subsurface CO2 Research Group  joined the StrataTrapper project.

The project is about upscaling heterogeneities of COstorages underground for their efficient yet accurate simulation. This is crucial for adequate predictions of COplumes' migrations, and, therefore, for better engineering & management of such storages.

My current role is to test the upscaling approach against various field models and to participate in further maintaining and development of the toolkit.
Hopefully, my participation will result in some advancements of the method.
