I am a PhD candidate and member of Matthai’s research team. My research is part of the GeoCQuest project, involving a close collaboration between the three leading universities: Stanford, Cambridge and Melbourne. The first phase of this project was focused on the quantification of the impact of geoheterogeneity on CO2 plume migration in storage sites. This work is aimed at a better understanding of multi-phase flow. My contribution lies in developing tensorial, rate-dependent saturation functions for reservoir simulation that take into account the influence of nested geoheterogeneity at multiple scales, and different force balance ratios.
