Integrated Multi-Physics Lab

Our main interests are investigating multi-physics, multi-scale phenomena through integrating theoretical, experimental and computational analysis. Coupled multi-physics phenomena are defined as phenomena with at least two independent physical processes in one or multiple regimes and typically involves solving coupled systems of partial differential equations. For instance, fluid injection into a heterogeneous porous media and the impact of chemical corrosion at the fracture tips, etc. We investigate these phenomena experimentally, theoretically and numerically.  

Research Positions Available

Positions are currently available for post-docs, graduate and undergraduate students interested in the study of multi-scale, multi-physics. Please contact Dr. Newell directly at
