Research Interest

Identifying the general free-path basis for gas diffusion in porous media, the importance of water film hydraulics in multiphase fluid flow, Boltzmann flux distributions in unsaturated rocks, limits for capillary hysteresis, the permeability-sorptivity scaling relation, the unsustainability of reduction-based remediation of uranium contamination, the role of uranyl vanadates in controlling uranium concentrations in oxidizing environments, modeling and measurements of brine film thicknesses under confinement by supercritical CO2, experimentally identifying limitations of scaling predictions of capillary pressure-saturation relations for supercritical CO2-brine in porous media, the potential acceleration of soil carbon sequestration through gypsum dissolution, measuring multiphase fluid equilibrium and flow in low permeability shales, and measuring solute diffusion through adsorbed water films.
