My research interests are CO2 sequestration, energy and the environment, reservoir engineering, energy economics, and risk assessment.
I am currently working on a sensitivity study of CO2 storage in saline aquifers in the presence of a gas cap. This study was prompted by the presence of large gas cap at Cranfield field, Mississippi where CO2 is currently being injected for long-term storage.
