I am a mechanical/energy resources engineer with strong background in modeling and simulation. I have worked in modeling porous media, turbulence and heat transfer. My professional experience also includes software development and natural gas combined cycle power plant operations. Currently, I am pursuing my Ph.D in energy resources engineering at Stanford University. I am very interested in developing new approaches for modeling flow and transport in porous media.

Current Research and Scholarly Interests
I study models for flow in porous media. In particular, I am interested in the class of nonlocal models and stochastic models, which I believe are relevant for simplifying the workflow for reservoir simulation. The fact that these models can also be used in multiple scales makes them an even better candidate for modeling subsurface flow.
