Research Interests

I have a strong passion for industry-driven research based on fundamental understanding of the petrophysical properties of carbonate and diatomaceous rocks. My research places emphasis on multiphase phenomena explored through measurements of petrophysical properties, solid-fluid and fluid-fluid interactions. The approach uses elegant electromagnetic (EM) wave-based experimental, analytical & numerical work.
