I am a computational geoscientist interested in multiphase geosystems, in particular porous media. During my undergraduate studies I became fascinated by the role of transport in porous media in geological processes from melt migration deep in the Earth's interior to weathering and contaminant transport right at the surface. I believe a good understanding of flow and transport in porous media and more generally multiphase systems is central to the geosciences and decided to pursue the dynamics of these processes.
Multiphase and reactive systems are inherently complicated and require careful mathematical modeling and numerical simulation. I try to combine geological observations with analysis of simple model problems and more realistic numerical simulations to obtain an insight into these systems.
