postdoctoral appointment
Oct 15, 2023

On Oct 1st I started a new position as a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Dept. of Earth and Planetary Sciences at Harvard University and the Dept. of Civil and Environmental Engineering at MIT. I will be working on several topics involving faults, fluids and geomechanics.

PhD defense
Oct 15, 2023

On Sep 08 I successfully defended my PhD Thesis on "Numerical Simulation of Geologic Carbon Dioxide Storage in Faulted Siliciclastic Settings". I am indebted to everyone who made it possible, in particular my advisor Ruben Juanes. Excited for the next stage! 

Dec 21, 2022

Juanes Research Group attended AGU in Chicago last week. My presentation was on "Fault Zone CO2 Migration Hazard during Large-Scale Geologic Carbon Storage in the Miocene Section, Gulf of Mexico". It was great to have in-person research interactions with the broader community again!

Runako Gentles, a junior in MIT Course 1, was recently highlighted on the CEE website. I am mentoring him on a research project focused on classifying induced earthquakes based on statistical features computed from time-series data, and learning a lot alongside him. Congratulations and keep it up, Runako!

Back home after two productive months with ExxonMobil as a carbon storage research intern. My research project focused on CO2 storage in severely depleted fields, and involved both geomechanics and reservoir simulation. Very thankful to the Carbon Storage team for the opportunity!

I talked to Kate Petersen about my work over the past year as a 2020-2021 MathWorks Engineering Fellow

Thanks to The MathWorks, Inc. and the MIT School of Engineering for the support!
