Gege Wen is Ph.D. candidate at the Energy Resources Engineering Department in the School of Earth, Energy and Environmental Sciences at Stanford University. She received her Master's degree in Fluid Mechanics and Hydrology from Civil and Environmental Engineering at Stanford University and has been working with Professor Sally Benson since 2016 on numerical simulation for carbon capture and storage. During her Ph.D., she focuses on machine learning approaches for carbon storage problems and published journal articles on this topic. She is currently an ExxonMobil Emerging Energy Fellow. She served as reviewer for academic journals and ICML, NeurIPS, and ICLR conference workshops. Prior to attending Stanford, she received her Bachelor's degree with honors from Lassonde Mineral Engineering at University of Toronto.

  •, Stanford Center for Carbon Storage is a deep learning modeling suite to provide fast prediction for CO2 storage problems. It is developed by Gege Wen at Stanford University, advised by Prof. Sally M. Benson. CCSNet provides Synthetic Heterogeneous, Homogeneous, Purely layered, and User upload isotropic permeability maps. The isotropic cases are predicted with pre-trained convolutional neural network models. Anisotropic permeability maps are supported with the Synthetic Heterogeneous option, predicted with pre-trained enhanced Fourier neural operators.
