My research interests focus on the (1) development of geophysical monitoring approaches sensitive to alterations of physicochemical properties in different porous media/rocks at various scales, (2) investigating the geophysical responses of geochemical and biological processes in the subsurface, (3) characterizing rock/fluid interfacial properties, and (4) providing petrophysical models based on the interpretation of geophysical datasets.
