Ph.D. Students

Ph.D. Student - ERPE Program - Hoteit Group

Research Interest

Interested in the efficient and safe production of hydrocarbon energy resources governed by fundamental knowledge of thermodynamics, multiphase transport in porous media, fluid-phase behavior, fluid/fluid and fluid/solid interactions. Focused more in enhanced gas condensate recovery and molecular diffusion modeling. Developing expertise in both microfluidics fabrication, flow experiments, characterization techniques and pore-scale numerical simulation.
