Pramod Bhuvankar, an EGD postdoctoral fellow working with research scientist Abdullah Cihan, received a Young Researcher Presenter Award during the 2020 Computational Methods in Water Resources conference in December. His presentation, “Pore-scale simulations of permeability decline in porous media due to fines migration,” described a pore-scale CFD study of clay mobilization in porous media due to fresh water injection. The presentation proposed a correlation between the retained clay concentration, water salinity, and the injection velocity. Bhuvankar is one of seven researchers to receive the honor in 2020.
