Yuxin Wu is currently a geological research scientist at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, where his research is focused on the investigation of geophysical methods, primarily complex resistivity or spectral induced polarization, for the characterization and monitoring of hydrological and biogeochemical perturbations in the subsurface. He received his BA in petrology, mineralogy and geochemistry and MS in Environmental sciences from Peking University (China), and PhD in Environmental Geophysics from Rutgers (New Jersey). Dr. Wu’s current research topics include spectral electrical responses from mineral precipitation during remediation processes; investigation of geophysical imaging method for the monitoring of transformations during microbial enhanced hydrocarbon recovery under high pressure and monitoring of fracture emplacement and amendment delivery in both saturated and unsaturated zones. Dr. Wu is also interested in the monitoring of the fate and transport of engineered nano and micron particles, particularly Fe0, in the subsurface with geophysical methods.
Hydrogeophysics and biogeophysics. Experimental and theoretical aspects of geophysical signatures from physiochemical transformations associated with engineered subsurface treatment technologies including redox and bio-remediation, iron based permeable reactive barrier and CO2 sequestration.
