I am a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Melbourne since October 2016. I worked as a postdoctoral fellow in the Centre for Geosciences of MINES ParisTech in 2016.

I study coupled physical mechanisms from pore to large scales and develop analytical and numerical methods.


Pore-scale modelling: studying laminar flow on sphere-pack geometries. Velocity field of body centered model

Laboratory scale modelling: studying instabilities, convective mixing in both gas and aqueous phases. Density driven flow due to CO2 dissolution, velocity field, (I. Sin. PhD thesis, 2015)

Reservoir scale modelling: density driven flow due to CO2 dissolution. Modelling long-term CO2 injection, density of aqueous phase (I. Sin. PhD thesis, 2015)

Modelling injection of CO2 with impurities: studying coupled chemical, thermo- and hydrodynamic processes. Chromatographic partitioning, cross-section of gas current (I. Sin. PhD thesis, 2015):
