Current Research:
My current research involves experimental investigation of density-driven flow in heterogeneous porous media. The aim is to quantify the associated effects of heterogeneity on flow behaviour and on mixing of the injected fluid with the ambient fluid. Primary application of this work is on carbon sequestration.
