Early Career Researcher
Biography
I am a lecturer in Geology at the Nigeria Maritime University in Nigeria and also a current PhD Candidate at the University of Southampton. My research interest is in accessing the integrity of carbon capture and storage reservoirs using an experimental and modelling approach. The research involves Brine - CO2 flow-through injection laboratory experiments, Petrographic analysis to analyse geochemical and geomechanical changes of highly reactive rocks and fluids with emphasis on basalt and siliciclastic rocks. X-ray CT scanning to obtain 3D models of internal structures of samples before and after exposure to CO2. The experimental procedure includes coupled geophysical (ultrasonic waves and electrical resistivity), hydromechanical (permeability and strains) geochemical monitoring, control of real P-T (pressure-temperature) reservoir conditions and fluid composition.
