Personal profile

Research interests

I am an experimentalist, specialised in geo-environmental engineering.  I lead new avenues of research and advanced experimental capabilities in School of Engineering, University of Manchester to develop sustainable engineering solutions to tackle the environmental problems associated with geo-energy. My current core research areas are about:

- Developing sustainable materials to tackle hazardous pollutants in oil contaminated sites.

- Improving integrity and resilience of sealing and plugging materials in energy wells.

- Developing remedial solutions for potential gas leakage in emerging geo-energy technologies such as carbon sequestration.

- Managing contaminants from geothermal energy.

Biography

I am a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Solids and Structures, School of Engineering, the University of Manchester. I have expertise and interest in various aspects of geoenvironmental engineering and subsurface energy including gas transport and reactions in porous materials, soil and rock mechanics, gas emission from contaminated soils and remediation and mitigation techniques for protecting subsurface environment. Currently I am leading the development of low-cost, localised solutions for managing the hazardous volatile organic compounds (VOCs) emitting from crude oil contaminated lands. I designed this research in response to reported major health hazards and adverse impacts in pregnant women and infants in socio-economically deprived communities caused by VOC emissions from oil contaminated grounds (e.g. Niger Delta). My research extends beyond my core discipline of geoenvironmental engineering to applied digital technologies of Building Information Modelling and LiDAR/3D laser scanning in civil engineering.
During my postdoctoral research at Imperial College London (2015-17), I worked on several European and EPSRC funded projects related to mitigation and remediation of CO2 leakage from storage sites and wellbore integrity. I have continued my collaborations with Imperial College as Visiting Researcher (2017-20).

I completed my PhD on geological carbon sequestration in 2017 at Cardiff University where I designed and developed a high pressure high temperature laboratory facility for studying the gas flow and interactions in geo-materials including a high pressure manometric sorption cell and a triaxial core flooding setup with temperature control systems.

I have over five years of industry experiences within the consulting engineers, working on a range of projects related to Geotechnical Engineering, Mining and Engineering Geology.
