Research Areas

Research in Dr. Wildenschild's group focuses on physics, chemistry, and microbiology of relevance to flow and transport in porous media, - generally applied to the subsurface environment. And in many cases involving multi-phase flow phenomena.

A primary focus is detailed and highly controlled experiments (addressing flow, solute and mass transfer, microbial alteration and transport) that can help us understand the subsurface and evaluate new theory and numerical models alike. We apply this knowledge to answer questions of importance to geologic sequestration of CO2, to enhanced oil recovery practices, to subsurface water pollution and management, remediation strategies, and to improve our understanding of flow and transport in porous media in general.
