Dorthe Wildenschild is a professor of environmental engineering whose research focuses on flow and transport in porous media to help answer questions about subsurface water pollution and energy-related storage issues. Recent work includes optimization of geologic storage of anthropogenic CO2 in subsurface reservoirs; exploration of colloid-facilitated transport of contaminants in groundwater; microbial enhanced oil recovery; and investigations in support of more effective groundwater remediation techniques. She is currently the PI for an NSF-funded instrument development that will bring a state-of-the-art 3D imaging facility to OSU this coming spring (http://microct.oregonstate.edu/).
