Dr. Mohammad Piri

Mohammad PiriDr. Mohammad Piri's research is geared toward the development of a better understanding of the micro- and core-scale physics of flow and transport in man-made and naturally-occurring porous media. Over the last several years, he has been working toward the development of a vibrant research program to fill the knowledge gaps in the current state-of-the-art experimentation and modeling of multiphase displacement mechanisms in mixed-wet porous systems with applications to key technologies for energy and the environment. Dr. Piri and his research group strive to bridge the gap between fundamentals and applications in porous media flow systems consistent with fundamental scientific needs of the industry. Some of the specific research topics under study by Dr. Piri and his research group include CO2 sequestration and leakage, enhanced hydrocarbon recovery processes, two- and three-phase relative permeabilities (measurement and prediction), wettability in porous media, and pore-scale modeling of multiphase displacement processes.
