Professor Wildenschild’s research focuses on multi-phase flow and transport in porous media, generally applied to the subsurface environment. Her main focus is detailed and highly controlled experiments that can help us evaluate new theory and numerical models. Recent projects involve the development and use of x-ray microtomography capabilities to evaluate pore-scale processes (interfacial characteristics, film formation, biofilm behavior) in porous media. Applications of her research are in subsurface multi-phase flow characterization, groundwater remediation, microbial enhanced oil recovery, biofilm imaging, and geologic carbon sequestration.
