Digital Subsurface Flow & Transport Lab (DSFT)

Welcome to DSFT!

DSFT is led by Dr. Bicheng Yan, assistant Professor of Energy Resource and Petroleum Engineering Program. He is also affiliated to the Ali I. AI-Naimi Petroleum Engineering Research Center (ANPERC) in the Physical Science and Engineering Division (PSE) at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST).

DSFT is an interdisciplinary team with diverse expertise including numerical modeling, machine/deep learning and energy system management. We are a specialized research team dedicating to technology development of advanced physics-driven numerical simulation and data-driven modeling for fluid flow in porous media, which is commonly involved in the subsurface processes including hydrocarbon recovery, geological carbon storage, geothermal recovery and hydrogen storage. These technologies can be deployed to enhance the sustainability of the energy supply for our society, increase asset value for the stakeholders and decrease the environmental risk from different subsurface engineering operations.
