Research Interests

My current project is the CO2 geothermal project. It is a collaborative project between: Mechanical Engineering, Geology and Geophysics, Economics, and the Humphrey School of Public Affairs. The goals are to develop a develop a commercially viable geothermal power plant using CO2 as the working fluid. I have been specifically working on optimizing the power production over the life of the plant as well as options for integration of our plant with CO2 producing facilities.
