My research interests are in developing upscaled models, dimensional reduction and numerical algorithms for coupled multiphysics processes such as flow and transport in deformable porous media. The reactive flow models lead to changes in the geometry at the pore scale and require non-standard models for describing the processes. I have performed upscaling and dimensional reduction of such reactive processes and developed numerical methods for solving the upscaled models. I have also worked on scalable algorithms such as domain decomposition techniques for simulating multiphase flow and transport in porous media. In addition, I have worked on the analysis of iterative and multirate algorithms for solving the coupled flow and geomechanics problems in a porous medium.
