Faculty of Engineering, Computer and Mathematical Sciences

Eligible to supervise Masters and PhD - email supervisor to discuss availability.


I am a senior lecturer in Petroleum Engineering at the Australian School of Petroleum and Energy Resources (ASPER). My expertise is subsurface engineering with a focus on reactive multi-phase flow in porous media. I'm working with Formation Damage & EOR Research Group and I perform research on “Mathematical and Laboratory Modelling of multi-phase flow in porous media” with application in "CO2 Storage (CCUS)", “Low Salinity Waterflooding”, “Formation Damage” and "EOR".

Research Interests & Application.

  • Fines Migration and Formation Damage
  • Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage (CCUS)
  • Multi-Phase Reactive Flow in Porous Media
  • Enhanced Oil and Gas Recovery (EOR)
