I am currently a Research Scientist in the Energy Geosciences Division at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL). I received a B.Eng. in Geological Engineering in 2010 and a Ph.D. in Hydrogeology in 2016. My research focuses on the experimental studies of reservoir processes and subsurface hydrology in porous and fractured media, including multiphase flow, phase dissolution and mass transfer, interfacial and wetting phenomena, carbon dioxide sequestration and shale gas. At LBNL, I work on (1) nanomaterial synthesis and application for investigating subsurface energy production (oil & gas, geothermal, etc.); (2) pore-scale supercritical CO2-brine displacement, including mass transfer and interfacial wetting effects under reservoir high pressure and high temperature conditions, using 2D micromodels, facilitated with fluorescent tracer dye and microscope imaging; (3) core-scale multiphase flow and rock mechanics with X-ray CT imaging and customized triaxial loading system, (4) bench-scale investigations of coupled THMC processes in engineered (clay) barrier systems and engineered (bedrock) damage zones for ensuring the safe and long-term performance of geological disposal of spent nuclear fuel and waste.
