Research Interests


My research is aimed at improved fundamental understanding of the thermophysical properties of fluids by means of measurement, modelling and theory. A special focus is placed upon systems relevant to oilfield processes and to carbon dioxide capture and storage. Current studies include:

  • the phase behaviour of complex mixtures;
  • the density and viscosity of fluids under conditions of high temperatures and pressures;
  • interfacial tension and wettability;
  • effects of confinement in porous media on fluid thermophysical properties and phase behaviour;
  • the speed of sound and derived thermodynamic properties of liquids and gases.
