My research interests include

Multiphase flow in porous media, with focus on capillary heterogeneities including permeability contrasts, pore scale distribution and fractures. The influence of wettability of fluid flow and fluid distributions and multiphase functions in sandstone, chalk and carbonate rock types. In-situ imaging of dynamic displacement processes in porous media using MRI/NMR, NTI and CT. The impact of capillary forces and EOR/IOR in conventional and fractured reservoirs, including foam flow, polymer gels. Generating correct capillary curves and relative permeability curves from different SCAL techniques for input parameters in simulators. Additives to invading water in spontaneous imbibition tests to enhance oil recovery.
