I am currently a Research Scientist in the Energy Geosciences Division at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL). I received a BEng in Civil Engineering in 2010 and a PhD in Geotechnical Engineering in 2016. My research focuses on numerical modeling of coupled thermal-hydro-mechanical-chemical (THMC) processes in the energy geosciences, including: (1) novel computational methods development such as extended finite volume method (XFVM), numerical manifold method (NMM), (2) numerical modeling of microscale coupled processes for understanding fundamental mechanisms, and (3) multi-scale, long-term analysis of THM processes in energy-geosciences applications such as nuclear waste disposal and geothermal exploitation. My research interests are continuously broadening with my increased understanding of numerical modeling and machine learning, fundamental geosciences, and energy geosciences applications. More recently, I became interested in exploring ‘smart’ use of machine learning for energy geosciences applications.
