My background is in fluid mechanics and applied mathematics, and I'm generally interested in using theoretical modeling and simple experiments to study complex geophysical and environmental fluids problems.
I earned my PhD, SM, and SB from the Department of Mechanical Engineering at MIT, where the focus of my research was on the fluid mechanics of geological carbon dioxide (CO2) sequestration. Specifically, I studied the large-scale migration and trapping of buoyant CO2 in saline aquifers.
I'm currently a Postdoctoral Associate at Yale University, where I'm studying two-phase fluid flow through deformable porous materials in order to understand the impact of capillarity and pressure buildup on the CO2 injection process and related problems. My work is funded by a generous Fellowship from the Yale Climate & Energy Institute.
