Research Interests

  • Computational geosciences, and the
  • Utilization of multimodal / multiscale 3D imaging towards the characterization and modeling of naturally fractured reservoirs

His current work pertains to three key areas:

  • The use of 4D X-ray tomography (synchrotron source and lab based sources), to reveal the mechanics of multiphase flow and deformation at the pore-scale within faulted and heterogeneous reservoir rocks.

  • The application of close-range remote sensing techniques (unmanned aerial vehicle and terrestrial lidar 3D imaging platforms) towards the characterization and modeling naturally fractured reservoirs of the Middle East (digital outcrop analogues).

  • Hybrid geomechanical - quasi-genetic modeling of natural fractures and discontinuities within structurally complex hydrocarbon reservoirs.
