Chris' research group studies flow, transport, and deformation in multiphase systems, from subsurface flows (e.g., water and energy resources) to soft porous materials (e.g., the swelling of gels and tissues). They are an
interdisciplinary team of engineers, earth scientists, physicists, and mathematicians, and their goal is to develop physical insight into complex natural and engineering systems by combining mathematical models, numerical simulations, and high-resolution laboratory experiments.
He is active in peer review for a variety of journals across physics, engineering, and geoscience, and serves as a member of the EPSRC Peer Review College.
