Research Interests

My research area involves theoretical and experimental studies of transport phenomena in porous media with focuses on their applications to different disciplines (such as hydrology, petroleum, chemical, and environmental engineering):

  • Analytical and numerical modeling of fluid flow and chemical species (solute/tracer/contaminant) transport in double-porosity systems using Reynolds decomposition, Fourier transform, Hankel transform, Laplace inversion, integration, differentiation, and Runge-Kutta-Fehlberg (RKF) methods,
  • Mathematical and experimental investigations of block-to-block interaction processes (capillary continuity and reinfiltration through formation of liquid bridges between matrix blocks) in fractured porous media,
  • Experimental studies of enhanced oil recovery (EOR) in sandstone and carbonate formations,
  • Computational modeling of geological storage of carbon dioxide (CO 2),
  • Mechanistic modeling and simulation of oil and gas transport through shale reservoirs including non-Darcian and Klinkenberg effects and sorption mechanism,
  • Experimental investigations of phase equilibria of confined fluids in nanopores of shale and tight rocks.
