Research Interests

My current research interests are related to energy transition and Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) methods. I am highly interested in researching CO2 storage processes and EOR methods optimization through reservoir modelling and numerical simulation. This aiming to design cost-effective schemes for the implementation of these strategies and using modelling and simulation as surveillance tools for these processes optimization.
