Nima Shokri is a Professor and Chair of Geo-Hydroinformatics at the Hamburg University of Technology. His main interests lie in creating new knowledge through research and innovation, developing new measurement tools and predictive capabilities to provide accurate understanding of multiphysics, multiscale, and multiphase processes occurring near Earth’s surface. He combines theory, state-of-the-art modelling, and experiments using cutting-edge tools such as thermal imaging, microfluidics, synchrotron X-ray tomography, satellite remote sensing, advanced machine learning, and computational fluid dynamics simulations, to cross disciplinary boundaries required to understand the complex mechanisms controlling heat, energy and mass transfer near Earth’s surface with a particular focus on the processes occurring in soil coupled with climatic parameters.

ryan.armstrong@unsw.edu.au

Research areas: My research area is multidisciplinary, incorporating aspects of applied mathematics, petroleum engineering, computer science, and fundamental physics. I integrate these disciplines into a comprehensive framework for digital materials characterization, porous media imaging and modelling, and multiphase flow studies related to future energy technologies.

The applications of my research include digital rock physics, in-situ recovery of minerals, geological storage of hydrogen, recovery of transitional fuels, geological storage of CO2, mineral liberation analysis, and machine learning in resources engineering."

My area of specialisation is non-equilibrium thermodynamics. With 4 books and about 400 publications we have contributed to theory development, in particular for interface transport, but also to applications in electrochemical and biological systems. Thermodynamics and transport in confined fluids is central.
