We study biogeochemical reactions at solid-fluid interfaces under fluid flow combining microfluidics experiments with pore-scale reactive transport simulations. The pore scale investigation will reveal key mechanisms that governs the interplay between fluid flow and biogeochemical reactions. Two main research motivations are:
- Clogging in porous media
- Coupling between biogeochemistry and fluid flow in extreme subsurface environments
Figure below shows change in iron precipitation patterns caused by fluid flow conditions.
More details will be updated soon.
