Research Interest:

Zhong Zheng has broad interests in energy science, engineering and policy issues. Zhong is also interested in China issues. Zhong’s current research projects include:
1) Multi-phase flow dynamics in porous reservoirs with application to carbon capture and storage (CCS), enhance oil recovery (EOR), and shale gas recovery processes;
2) CCS source-sink match, early demonstration, and international collaboration opportunities;
3) Coupled decision-making processes between countries and stakeholders in energy field;
4) Energy system integration and optimization, China energy strategy and policy.
