Jiamin Wan’s graduate education is in hydrology and geochemistry. Since graduation, she has been employed in the Energy Geosciences Division of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, and is currently a Staff Scientist. Her research is focused on interfacial, wetting, and capillary phenomena in geologic materials, and on biogeochemical reactions and subsurface transport of contaminants, colloids and nano-particulates. Her studies under high-pressure and high-temperature reservoir conditions combine pore-scale microscopy of fluid interfacial dynamics with surface spectroscopy and macroscopic interfacial measurements to understand mechanisms controlling CO2, water, and oil interactions. She currently has over 70 publications in peer-reviewed journals. She has been the lead principal investigator for many projects over the past two decades, obtaining funding through competitive peer-reviewed processes.
