I am an Associate Researcher at the Environmental Research Laboratory of the National Center for Scientific Research (NCSR) “Demokritos” (Greece), and a recently elected Assistant Professor at the School of Mineral Resources Engineering at the Polytechnic University of Crete (Greece).
My work focuses primarily on the theoretical and numerical modeling of transport processes in porous media, such as soils, fractured rocks, fibrous materials and membranes, across several spatiotemporal scales. I am particularly interested in how pore scale phenomena, rigorously modeled by means of pore-network and pore-scale approaches eventually determine the macroscopic (field) scale behavior of multiphase flows within geologic formations in applications related to Conventional and Enhanced Oil Recovery, Soil Remediation and geologic CO2 sequestration.
