Kang Research Group advances the understanding, modeling and prediction of fluid flow and reactive transport in porous and fractured media. We combine theory, high performance numerical simulation, and visual laboratory experiments to understand how the coupling between multiple processes such as biogeochemical, thermal, and mechanical processes controls fluid flow and reactive transport across scales: from pore to fracture to field scale. Based on the understanding of the multi-scale phenomena, we develop predictive models for water resources and environmental applications such as contaminant transport, subsurface characterization, aquifer storage and recovery, and groundwater and surface-water interactions.
