Dulcie's research focuses on how the rock properties of carbonate change when subjected to the decarbonation reaction under pressure. She induces the reaction using natural carbonate samples in the group High Temperature High Pressure (HTHP) reactor vessel and measures the resulting changes in acoustic and transport properties. In addition, she also worked on a novel application of 3D printing technology, utilizing it to print digital manipulations of a CT scan of a natural carbonate pore geometry. Those digital manipulations resulted in differences in the physically measured flow properties, allowing for direct connection between digitally and physically measured properties.
