About our research
Our group examines the fundamental properties of water at interfaces and their impact on chemistry, mechanics, and mass fluxes in natural systems. More
Ian's paper in ES&T reviews current knowledge of the basic science of CO2 trapping in geologic formations.
Ian's paper in ES&T Letters examines the permeability and mechanics of shale and mudstone. More
MD simulation workshop
Michael Holmboe, Laura Lammers, Karol Kulasinski, and Ian will lead a workshop on MD simulations of geochemical systems at the upcoming Goldschmidt Conference.
