EEWR Brown Bag Seminar with Professor Michael Celia
Speaker: Professor Michael Celia
Series: EEWR Brown Bag Seminars
Location: Engineering Quad E219
Date/Time: Friday, October 1, 2010, 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m.
Professor Michael Celia, Subsurface Hydrology Research Group
Professor Celia’s areas of research include groundwater hydrology, ecohydrology, numerical modeling, contaminant transport simulation, and multiphase flow physics. Ongoing projects include pore-scale network modeling to study interface dynamics, reactive transport, and scaling in porous media systems; computational studies of plant responses to variations in soil moisture in water-stressed ecosystems, with a focus on applications in sub-Saharan Africa; and studies associated with large-scale injection of CO2 into deep brine formations as a possible mitigation strategy for the atmospheric carbon problem. The carbon work is part of a large multi-disciplinary effort at Princeton known as the Carbon Mitigation Initiative.
