Gordon Research Conference keynote lecture
Dr Florian Doster, ERPE Assistant Professor with the Institute of Petroleum Engineering (IPE), has returned from an extensive trip to the USA. He delivered his "Towards A Consistent Theoretical Framework for Multiphase Flow in Porous Media" keynote lecture at the biennial Gordon Research Conference (GRC) on "Flow & Transport in Permeable Media", held 6-11 July 2014, Lewiston, Maine.
Florian reported that "This Gordon Research Conference is the premier knowledge transfer place to be, particularly for cross disciplinary interaction between hydrology and petroleum engineering on porous flow. The collaborating and networking opportunities are fantastic."
While in the States he was a panelist on post-PhD career tracks and visited the Princeton University to maintain joint research collaboration links, e.g. as part of a successful grant "Multiscale Modeling of CO2 Migration and Trapping in Fractured Reservoirs with Validation by Model Comparison and Real-Site Applications" from the US Department of Energy that has been awarded to a consortium led by Michael A. Celia, Princeton University and also includes Lawrence Berkley National Lab. Heriot-Watt University is represented through Sebastian Geiger and Florian Doster.
