Research Interests: Pore scale modeling

I’m a PhD student working with Dr. Daigle.

My present research includes: 
Extracting shale pore structure information from experiments and scanning electron microscope (SEM);
Pore scale network model construction of shale matrix;
Numerical simulation of gas transport mechanisms in organic rich shales;
Numerical simulation of multi-phase flow in organic rich shales;

I'm proficient with MATLAB, R, Python and mySQL. I have two years work experience with processing first hand oil-field data with statistic methods (such as Fuzzy Logic and Genetic Algorithm) and reservoir simulators (such as Eclipse and CMG).
