Chris MacMinn

I was a member of the Juanes Research Group from September 2006 until February 2012, when I earned my PhD from the Department of Mechanical Engineering. The focus of my research was on the fluid mechanics of geological carbon dioxide (CO2) storage. Specifically, I used theoretical models and simple experiments to study the subsurface migration and trapping of the buoyant CO2 after injection.
