Yue (Olivia) Meng

I am a graduate student in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering in MIT. Prior to my PhD, I received my bachelor degree in Civil & Environmental Engineering from the University of Hong Kong in 2018. I am interested in numerical modeling and experiments of multiphase flow in porous media, which has practical importance in enhanced oil recovery and shale gas production. My current research is centered about DEM modeling of wettability control on hydraulic fracture patterns.
