The overarching theme of my research is multiscale modeling of complex systems, focusing on coupling of multiphase and reactive fluid flow in deformable porous and granular media. I integrate simulations, experiments and theory to understand how the interplay between hydrodynamics, geomechanics, geochemistry, phase transitions, microstructure, and the emergence of preferential pathways affects the hydromechanical response of a hydrogeological system. My research, which cuts across the interface of engineering, earth sciences and physics, is motivated by applications ranging from soil wetting and drying, subsurface contamination and remediation, and carbon geosequestration to slope stability, earthquakes, floods and landslides.
