My research focuses on predicting CO2 plume migration during carbon sequestration using multi-scale technologies, which serves carbon neutrality, a long-term strategy to save Planet Earth from the imminent danger of catastrophic global warming. Areas of my expertise cover computational and experimental approaches for fluid dynamics, such as multiscale multiphase flow, reactive transport, heat /mass transfer, etc.,  through porous materials.
