Areas of Senyou's expertise cover advanced computational and experimental methods for fluid dynamics, such as multiscale multiphase flow, reactive transport, heat transfer, fluid-fluid interfaces, complex fluids (rheology), and non-classical theories of flow through porous materials to address fundamental problems in engineering and natural applications. The project Senyou is doing now is: Pore-to-core linkages and upscaling for gas injection (COstorage, EOR) in carbonates.
