I am a computational geoscientist interested in the physics of fluid flow and transport in permeable earth materials. My research focuses on advancing the fundamental understanding of porous media flow and developing computational models to address practical problems in subsurface energy and environmental systems including shale gas/oil production, geological CO2 storage, and contaminant transport in soil and groundwater. Before I joined the U of A, I was a postdoc in the Department of Energy Resources Engineering at Stanford University working with Prof. Hamdi Tchelepi. I completed my PhD in Civil and Environmental Engineering at Princeton University in 2016, where I worked with Prof. Michael Celia in the Subsurface Hydrology Research Group. I received my B.S. (with highest honor) in Hydraulic Engineering from Tsinghua University in China in 2011.
[upcoming] Bo Guo, Yashar Mehmani, and Hamdi Tchelepi will be chairing four sessions "Recent Advances in Pore-Scale Modeling and Experiments for Flow in Porous Media" I-IV in AGU Fall Meeting 2018 in Washington D.C. on Dec. 10-14. We would love to see you there.
