Postdoctoral Fellow

EOS-South 358

I am a postdoc working on reactive transport modeling with Prof. Uli Mayer in the Hydrogeology group. To date, my research focused primarily on the aging effects of material properties on mineralogical evolution and transport properties. To account for aging effects, my work to date focused on multiphysics modeling and numerical methods. Specifically, my Ph.D. work focused on sulphate attack on concrete, including the investigation of species diffusion depending on crack propagation induced by the precipitation reactions inside the porous medium. In my current postdoctoral role at UBC. I work on enhancing the reactive transport code MIN3P to capture complex interactions between multiphase flow and reactive transport through unsaturated porous media with applications to mine waste. The work will specifically focus on the implementation of a compositional solution approach into the MIN3P software.
