Pei Li is a Postdoctoral fellow working with Dr. Hang Deng in the Energy Geosciences Division at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL). His research focuses on simulating multiphase multicomponent transport at the pore scale of fractured porous media, which couples the reactive transport with multiphase flow process. The research outcome will be used to understand how the multiphase flow and reactive transport processes affect each other in the subsurface environment, and even predict their effects at the Darcy or field scale.
Prior to joining the LBNL, Pei Li finished his Ph.D in the Weizmann Institute of Science, where he developed an lattice Boltzmann model (LBM) which simulates the old-new water interactions with reactive transport process during the drainage-imbibition cycles in the vadose zone. The model was used to verify the interactions between old-new water and related transport process at the pore scale, which is captured in the macroscale model. His interests also include High Performance Computation (HPC), hybrid computation, and upscaling modeling.
