My research centers on two-phase flow dynamics, with its application to both metamorphic fluid percolation (e.g., porosity waves) and porous melt migration, as well as the two-phase chemical interactions along flow pathways. To resolve fundamental questions regarding mass (especially carbon) and energy transfer in Earth's lower crust and mantle, I adopt approaches from computational thermodynamics, geophysical fluid dynamics, and petrology/geochemistry. You can find more in the RESEARCH section.

I am broadly interested in geodynamics, petrology, geochemistry, and relevant scientific computing. My past advisory committee is accordingly interdisciplinary: Prof. Jay Ague is my advisor. Prof. David Bercovici, Prof. Jun Korenaga, Prof. Danny Rye provide me with perspectives from geodynamics and geochemistry.
