Current Graduate Students
Ishan Anjikar, Civil Engineering MS student
Ishan got his bachelor’s degree in Environmental Engineering from IIT (ISM) Dhanbad, India in 2016. He started his MS at Auburn University in Fall 2017. He is working on reactive transport modelling of brine and scCO2 under geologic CO2 sequestration conditions.
Chidera Iloejesi, Civil Enginering PhD student
Chidera started his PhD at Auburn University in Fall 2017.
Fanqi Qin, Civil Engineering PhD student
Fanqi graduated from Huazhong Agricultural University in China in 2015 and started as PhD student in Fall 2016. His current research is focused on CO2 mineralization in geological formations, how CO2 interacts with brine and different minerals, and the potential alteration it may bring on rock properties including porosity and permeability.
Jeffrey Steinwinder, Civil Engineering MS student
Jeff graduated from Mississippi State University in 2016 and started as a MS student in Fall 2017. His current research is focused on porosity-permeability evolution and impacts of pore and throat size distributions on macroscopic porosity-permeability relationships.
