I am a Lecturer in the Department of Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil Engineering at the University of Manchester. I joined Manchester in 2017 following a 3-year postdoctoral research in the Department of Earth Science and Engineering at Imperial College London. At Imperial, I worked on several European and EPSRC funded projects related to mitigation and remediation of CO2 leakage from storage sites and wellbore integrity. I have been a Visiting Researcher at Imperial College London since I joined Manchester.
I completed my PhD on geological carbon sequestration in 2017 at Cardiff University where I designed and developed a high pressure high temperature laboratory facility for studying the gas flow and interactions in geo-materials including a high pressure manometric sorption cell and a triaxial core flooding setup with temperature control systems.
I am an experimentalist with expertise and interests in various aspects of geoenvironmental engineering and subsurface energy including gas transport and reactions in porous materials, soil and rock mechanics, gas emission from contaminated soils and remediation and mitigation techniques for protecting subsurface environment.
I have over five years of industry experiences within the consulting engineers, working on a range of projects related to Geotechnical Engineering, Mining and Engineering Geology.
