Position: PhD student

Interests:

My research is focused on investigating multiphase fluid flow migration in sandstones characterized by structural heterogeneities.

I have conducted several core flooding experiments using medical CT scanner and performed single-phase radiotracer pulse experiments using micro-PET imaging.

I also have expertise in image acquisition and image processing. I have developed an automatic post-reconstruction beam hardening correction for improving image qualities.
