I am interested in multiphase reactive flows in porous media. My work is based on a multiscale strategy using microfluidics experiments in order to improve our knowledge of the key mechanisms of multiphase reactive flows, to improve large scale models, and to identify the relevant couplings between phenomena at different scales under various conditions.
I am teaching classes in hydrogeology, geochemistry, reactive transport, transport laws.
Experimental study of dynamics of two-phase immiscible flows in etched-silicon micromodels
- Objectives: understand the underlying physics in multi-phase flow in porous media (processes of Enhanced Oil Recovery, CO2 geological sequestration…).
- Fabrication of 2D etched-silicon micromodels (photolithography, etching, glass bonding).
- Control of the flow conditions in the micromodels and imaging of the flow.
- Development of PIV (Particle Image Velocimetry) measurements in micromodels to investigate single-phase and two-phase flows.
- Image processing: image enhancement, detection of particles for PIV measurements, detectin of fluid-fluid interfaces etc.
