Marie Curie Postdoctoral Fellow

Research Interests:

  • Physics of multiphase flow in porous media
  • Computational fluid dynamics
  • Contaminant transport in heterogeneous porous media.

CO2-MATE Project

CO2_MATE is a project funded by the European Union under the Marie Curie IOF program. The project is a collaboration between MIT and IDAEA-CSIC, which focuses on the processes that govern CO2 flow and transport in saline aquifers.
