Bio & Research:
I am currently a 4th year graduate student in Dr. Daigle's lab. My research is on Pickering emulsions. I am modifying the surface properties of silica nanoparticles to improve Pickering emulsion stability for flow in porous media. In order to quantify the stability of the emulsions, I am using several characterization techniques to understand the micro-structure and distribution of nanoparticles on the emulsion drop surface. The aim is to use these emulsions to recover heavy oils from reservoirs.
