Yu-Shu Wu is a professor in Petroleum Engineering, at the Colorado School of Mines (CSM), Golden CO, and he is also a guest scientist at the Earth Sciences Division of the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) since 2008. At CSM, Yu-Shu is teaching courses in petroleum reservoir engineering, supervising graduate students, and conducting research in the areas of multiphase fluid and heat flow in subsurface, and CO2-EOR and sequestration in reservoirs, reservoir simulation, and geothermal energy since 2008. Previously, he was a Staff Scientist with the Earth Sciences Division of LBNL for 14 years (1995-2008). When at LBNL, he led a multidisciplinary team in quantitative investigation of multiphase fluid and heat flow and radionuclide transport in the Yucca Mountain unsaturated zone, and developed the 3-D, site-scale, unsaturated zone flow and transport model and the 3-D mountain-scale thermal-hydrological model for the Yucca Mountain unsaturated zone, which are being used by the US DOE for its current effort of license application of the high-level radioactive waste repository at the Yucca Mountain unsaturated zone system.
Yu-Shu has been one of the developers of the TOUGH2 family of codes at LBNL. In particular, he has led the efforts in developing (1) the Yucca Mountain version of TOUGH2, (2) the T2R3D code (radionuclide transport module), and (3) the TOUGH2_MP (massive parallel version of TOUGH2, the most required TOUGH2 code). Currently, he is leading DOE-funded multi-year modeling research collaboration efforts between CSM and LBNL in the area of CO2 sequestration and enhanced geothermal systems (EGS). Over his career, Yu-Shu has authored and co-authored 70+ peer-reviewed journal papers as well as 100+ research reports and conference papers.
