Mr Thomas Russell

Postdoctoral Researcher

Australian School of Petroleum & Energy Resources

Faculty of Engineering, Computer and Mathematical Sciences


I am a Postdoctoral researcher in Petroleum Engineering at the Australian School of Petroleum and Energy Resources. I am performing novel research on fluid flow and formation damage in porous media. My work includes contribution to government and industry projects with particular focus on enhanced oil/gas recovery processes and geosequestration of CO2. My work is primarily focused on mathematical modelling to improve design and predictive capabilities with contributions to experimental works to improve understanding of underlying processes.

My research is related to Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) projects related to Petroleum Engineering.

Primarily I work on the formation damage caused by fines migration. I currently perform laboratory tests as well as mathematical modelling to provide predictions of formation damage under varying conditions for injection.
