I joined Lamont as a Postdoctoral Research Scientist after receiving my Ph.D. from the Ohio State. My research focuses on natural gas hydrates ('frozen ice' that can burn) in subsurface sediments. I integrete logging and coring measurements and numerical models to understand the formation mechanisms of hydrate reservoirs and evaluate their amount and distribution in subsurface. 

Fields of Interest

Natural gas hydrate subsurface fluid flow borehole logging and coring
