Current Research

Nima studies the physics of flow and transport phenomena in porous media applied to the subsurface environment. His interests are mainly focused on the analytical analysis, simulation, measurement and interpretation of various aspects of flow and transport in porous media such as heat and mass transfer, dynamics of immiscible two-phase flow and interfacial processes in porous media. His research group combines the experimental results obtained by cutting-edge technologies such as x-ray tomography, neutron radiography, and acoustic emission technique with physically-based models to provide better understanding of various hydrological processes occurring near earth surface such as water evaporation, salt distribution in soil, and water infiltration.
