Welcome to my website
Here you will find all sorts of information about my work as a Research Scientist and Engineer and some examples of the projects I have been involved with. I am an Associate Scientist at CNRS, the French National Centre for Scientific Research, working at the Institute of Earth Sciences of Orléans (ISTO). I have more than 10 years of experience in Computational Fluid Dynamics in both academia and industry. My interest in fluid mechanics is very broad including flow and transport in porous media, multiphase flow, complex and non-Newtonian flow, and superfluid. I am considering a wide variety of scales ranging from nanometers to kilometers. I am always eager to solve new challenging problems. Feel free to contact me for more information. Enjoy your visit.
2020, Nov 15: My project CaraMBar on characterization and modelling of confinement barriers for geological storage of carbon dioxide to mitigate climate change has been awarded a 25k€ grant by CNRS's Mission for Transversal and Interdisciplinary Initiatives.
2020, Sept 24: My project TransCol on modelling colloidal transport in porous media has been awarded with a 25k€ grant by Labex Voltaire.
2020, Sept 4: Our article "Multiphase Flow Modeling in Multiscale Porous Media: An Open-Source Micro-Continuum Approach" with Francisco Carrillo and Ian Bourg from Princeton University has been accepted for publication in Journal of Computational Physics!
2020, July 25: I am now the head of the Porous Media Research Group at the Institute of Earth Sciences of Orléans (ISTO).
2020, July 1: I have been elected president of FOAM-U, the association of the French/Belgium OpenFOAM users. I hope to see you in May 2021 in Lyon for our annual meeting.
2020, Jun 15: Check out our new publication "Microfluidic flow-through reactor and 3D Raman imaging for in situ assessment of mineral reactivity in porous and fractured porous media" in Lab-on-a-Chip with Jenna Poonoosamy from Institute of Energy and Climate Research (IEK-6), Forschungszentrum Jülich link
My work focuses on fluid flow and transport in porous media from the pore to the reservoir scale. I develop multi-scale mathematical models and computational tools. My research on porous media applies to very different domains such as chemical engineering, nuclear engineering, and subsurface engineering.
I am teaching Computational Fluid Dynamics using the open-source software OpenFOAM since 2009. Today, more than two hundred students, Researchers, Engineers in both academia and industry attended my classes. Feel free to contact me if you need on-site training.
At Stanford University, I am also giving lectures on fluid flow at the pore-scale.
