Dr Themis Carageorgos

Research Fellow

Australian School of Petroleum

Faculty of Engineering, Computer and Mathematical Sciences

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


I am a Research fellow at the Australian School of Petroleum (ASP) of the University of Adelaide since 2008. I graduated in chemical engineering from the Fluminense Federal University (1979- Brazil) and I did my PhD in mineral resources engineering at Imperial College (1993 - London). From 1999 – 2007 I worked as an associated professor in petroleum engineering at North Fluminense State University (Brazil).

My main research interests are in laboratory studies of flow of suspension/colloid transport in porous media with applications to formation damage, environmental engineering and unconventional energy resources (CBM, shale gas/oil, geothermal reservoirs).

My current research involves:

  • Micro-flow in porous media for oil production related studies.
  • Visualization and image analysis of micro-flow in porous media for oil production related studies.
  • Determination of ions by Ion chromatography technique.
  • Nano-particles behavior in porous media related to oil production.
