My previous research experience was in developing upscaled models and computational tools for improving the microbial selective plugging technology. My current research interests are in developing upscaled models and computational tools for CO2 sequestration.

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.
Efficient models for Microbially Induced CAlcite Precipitation as a seal for CO2 storage (MICAP)
Microbially induced calcite precipitation (MICP) is an emerging technology that has garnered high interest lately due to its significant sealing capabilities and the potential for laterally extensive seals of biofilms and calcite, through aqueous injections of microbes, nutrients, urea and calcium. Project MICAP will therefore:
1. Develop and verify robust and efficient upscaled models for microbially induced calcite precipitation (MICP), and
2. Apply developed models to field cases to improve strategies that prevent leakage of CO2 in large-scale storage operations.
