Welcome to the WRISES Research Group Page (PI: L.E. Beckingham)! Our research focuses on subsurface water-rock interactions for energy-related systems as well as traditional environmental engineering problems. We strive to enhance predictive capabilities of mineral dissolution and precipitation reactions and corresponding fate and transport in porous media across various scales. As detailed on the Research page, our approach combines advanced imaging techniques, such as the SEM image shown above (featured in Princeton University’s Art of Science and on the New York Times Science page), with experimental studies and numerical modeling.
