Lab & Facilities
Welcome to the Environmental Fluid Mechanics Group at Boston University! We are part of the Department of Earth and Environment at Boston University.
We study the physics of multiphase flow and transport phenomena in porous media applied to the subsurface environment. Our interests are mainly focused on the analytical analysis, simulation, measurement and interpretation of various aspects of flow and transport in porous media such as heat and mass transfer, dynamics of miscible and immiscible multiphase flow and interfacial processes in porous media and wetting phenomena.
We combine the results of our experiments obtained by cutting-edge technologies such as x-ray tomography, neutron radiography, and acoustic emission technique with physically-based models to provide better understanding of various hydrological processes occurring near earth surface such as water evaporation, salt distribution in soil, and water infiltration.
We are always interested in working with committed and enthusiastic students. To explore the available undergraduate and graduate research positions, directly contact Prof. Shokri (firstname.lastname@example.org)
