Biography

Dr. Mojdeh Rasoulzadeh’s research is in the area of modeling flow and species transport in highly heterogeneous subsurface systems. She is interested in analytical solutions and numerical simulation of coupled hydro-mechanical-chemical processes in highly heterogeneous porous media. Her focus is on obtaining the effective macroscale nonlocal models of flow and transport in multiscale heterogeneous media via applying mathematical techniques such as homogenization.

She is also interested in pore-scale modeling of flow, deformation, and dissolution in nano/microscale fractures and cavities embedded in a porous host. Flow and deformation in fractured/vuggy carbonate reservoirs, sinkhole formation and evolution, pressure transient behavior of multiscale fractured unconventional gas reservoirs, and bridging between scales from molecular dynamics simulation to effective medium theory are the projects that she is currently working on.

She is affiliated to Alabama Water Institute and Center for Complex Hydrosystems Research at The University of Alabama. Her research group includes math graduate students and undergraduate students majoring in mathematics and/or engineering.
