Projects per year
I am a Research Associate in the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering. My research interests focus on microbially induced carbonate precipitation (MICP), transport in porous media, and geomechanics & geophysics.
I am currently working on the project regarding optimization of injection protocols and pumping strategies for upscaling the MICP soil treatment technology from lab-scale to field-scale. This includes the understanding of bacterial transport in laboratory sand columns, achieving a homogeneous distribution of MICP, and eventually achieving a relatively homogeneous strength of the weak rock in the laboratory/field.
I have a PhD in Energy and Mineral Engineering from Pennsylvania State University. My PhD research focused on hydromechanical properties of rocks, water vapor sorption/condensation, rock-CO2 interaction, etc.
