Research Interests

My research focus on the study of fluid flow, from the Science (fundamental) to the Engineering (applied), so that we can further our understanding of their properties and develop solutions for their application. Our group covers a number of different areas for fluid flow. Develop and apply computational methods to measure and predict the composition and fractional occupancy of the cavities in clathrate hydrates for any given temperature and pressure that represents a fundamental study that builds upon electronic structure interactions and molecular ensembles to determine structural properties to phase equilibria. My research is based on theoretical, and computational approaches, so that a comprehensive understanding can developed for flow and molecular mechanism.
