The Computational Geofluids Lab pursues research at the intersection of geological fluid systems and energy resources, including geologic CO2 sequestration, injection-induced earthquakes, hydrothermal fluid systems, and continental-scale fluid regimes. We specialize in numerical modeling, multi-phase fluid flow, geostatistical methods, and fracture network characterization with terrestrial LiDAR.
