My research aims to improve fundamental understanding of gas evolution and multiphase fluid flow within water-saturated, deformable porous media. These processes are governed by concurrent fluid-fluid and fluid-rock interactions such as chemical mass transfer, capillarity, buoyancy, viscous drag, and effective stress. Potential applications for the fundamental knowledge that I aim to generate include geologic radioactive waste storage, carbon sequestration, and hydraulic fracturing.

To better understand the possible risks posed to shallow groundwater resources by geologic carbon sequestration (GCS), a multi-scale numerical modeling approach was invoked using the TOUGHREACT code from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. The code solves coupled equations representing conservation of mass and energy on a finite difference grid to simulate multiphase, multicomponent, non-isothermal heat and mass transport in porous media. Two different two-dimensional cross-section modeling domains were constructed to improve understanding of groundwater flow and contaminant transport processes at a field site in soutwestern Utah. The site represents a natural analogue for leakage from a GCS site because water...
