We are pleased to welcome our SFB 1313 guest Mohammadjavad Shokriafra from the University of Manchester. He will be staying at the Institute of Applied Mechanics (CE) of the University of Stuttgart from 28 October to 23 December 2022.
Javad will be collaborating with SFB 1313 principal investigator Holger Steeb and his research group at the Institute of Applied Mechanics (MIB) of the University of Stuttgart. The work will focus on the mechanistic study of carbon dioxide storage in fractured carbonate reservoirs. During his stay, Javad will use the state-of-the-art facilities of the Porous Media Lab (PML) at the MIB (CE) to investigate the effect of various parameters on the reactive transport of carbon dioxide in fractured porous media.
About Mohammadjavad Shokriafra
Javad is a reservoir engineer by background and joined the IMPRES group at the University of Manchester in 2019. Through collaboration with various scientists and researchers, he hopes to reduce global emissions while shaping a sustainable future for the energy sector.
As part of his PhD, he focused on carbon dioxide storage in subsurface structures. He has leveraged experimental work and numerical simulation to tackle uncertainties of upscaling fluid flow in porous media. Javad also worked on upscaling capillary pressure in heterogeneous porous media and upscaling aqueous reactions. His most recent research focuses on the electrode design improvement of redox flow batteries.
