Project Title

CO2 Storage Potential in Naturally-Fractured Reservoirs


My research aims at studying the viability of injecting greenhouse gases, such as CO2, in fractured subsurface geological formations. I study the physical processes that take place during CO2 injection and implement the physical models in an open-source numerical simulator called MRST (developed in Matlab).

All my computational models are available to the scientific community as an extension of this simulator, and the toolbox I have developed from scratch is currently being distributed with MRST.
