I am a reactive transport modeler involved in research for the Sustainable Systems Scientific Focus Area and the Center for Nanoscale Control of Geologic CO2. I am interested in the investigation of the coupling between fluid flow, solute transport and geochemical processes in subsurface environments at different scales by means of reactive transport modeling. I am currently developing tools to perform direct numerical simulation of flow, transport and geochemical reactions at the pore scale. We are using these tools to quantify porosity and permeability changes due to geochemical reactions, and in turn their effect on upscaled reaction rates. Previously, I investigated the feedback mechanisms between geochemical reactions and gas transport in the vadose zone and worked on the development of an efficient formulation for reactive transport problems that maximized the number of equations decoupled from chemical reaction terms.
