My research interests lie in multiphase flow in porous media, granular mechanics, energy and environmental sciences. I combine continuum theory, discrete element modeling and novel experimental technique (photoporomechanics) to study the fundamental mechanics involving solid-fluid coupling.


I received my master’s and PhD (2022) degrees in Civil and Environmental Engineering from MIT, supervised by Professor Ruben Juanes. I am currently a postdoc in Dr. Ching-Yao Lai’s group in Princeton University and studying on:

  • the granular physics of ice mélange, its impact on icebergs calving and response to global warming;
  • vulnerability of Greenland’s firn layer to hydrofracturing predicted by a poromechanical continuum model.
