Professional Background

My research focus on wellbore integrity during carbon leakage, at the fracture interface and at the core scale. In particular, I work on cement chemical and mechanical response after exposure to enriched carbon solution at pressure and temperature relevant to subsurface storage. I am also interested in carbon leakage and groundwater remediation. I have a particular interest in wellbore risk mitigation and in field experiment. My work aims to link laboratory results to field scale experiment in order to understand and constrain future risks.

Research Interests

Carbon leakage mitigation, Groundwater remediation, Wellbore integrity, Marine geochemistry, Biogeochemistry
