Research Interests

My research interest is engineering Nubian Sandstone reservoir to extract enthalpy while sequestering CO2, forming a so-called CO2-Plume Geothermal (CPG) system. I am studying CO2 plume migration at multiple length scales range from Nano-meter scale using Synchrotron Radiation X‐ray Tomographic Microscopy (SRXTM) to reservoir-scale using the released subsurface field dataset. I am, currently, focusing on employing capillary pressure, relative permeability curves and pore-scale displacement mechanisms to predict the extent of CO2 plume migration at a representative geological scale.
