My current research interests are in developing upscaled models and computational tools for improving the microbial selective plugging technology. Experiments are performed in the laboratory to calibrate the mathematical models. The biofilm growing leads to changes in the geometry at the pore scale modelled by a free boundary coupled with flow and transport equations. I have performed upscaling of the pore-scale model and now we are modelling the process in the core-scale.

Improving microbial selective plugging technology through experimentally based modelling and simulation (IMMENS)
The IMMENS project will develop experimentally based mathematical models and numerical techniques for a better understanding and optimization of adaptive bio-plug technology for diversion of injection water during tertiary oil recovery. The competence and technology developed through the project will facilitate the qualification for pilot testing and simulation at reservoir scale.
