James McClure, computational scientist from Virginia Tech, USA, is visiting EQUINOR and IGP during the week 43. A workshop will be organised at IGP during his presence.
Short bio: My research work is focused on the development of theoretical and numerical methods to study transport phenomena in porous media, especially using digital rock physics. Digital rock physics allows the microstructure of real geologic materials to be observed directly, providing an opportunity to extract quantitive information about a wide range of physical processes. I am particularly interested in software development for digital rock physics as a way to connect experimental data sources to multiscale averaging theories. Codes that I have developed include lattice Boltzmann simulators for single and multiphase flows, image analysis methods, and an upscaling framework to track the behavior of phases, interfaces and common curves on complex systems
