Research Interests

The energy sustainability is one of the greatest global challenges humanity has faced. The understanding of the physical phenomena plays an important role in the solutions that the energy sector needs. In particular, flow of mixed fluids as well as properties characterization in carbonate reservoirs need to be well understood using physical insightful experiments and simple but robust numerical models.
