Current Research

Bagus' research combines a range of state-of-the-art modelling and experimental techniques to understand flow and transport in natural porous media. His research aims at overcoming the scientific challenges due to complex geometry and bio-geo-chemical processes; and a large disparity in scales in many subsurface flow and transport problems. He incorporates X-ray micro-CT, and Nuclear Magnetic Resonance imaging technologies to probe into flow and transport at a micro-, and milimetres scale. These provide the basis for validation and direct inputs for the numerical models. Bagus has developed mathematical and numerical models for flow at a rarefied (where the characteristic length of the problem is comparable to the gas mean-free path), and a continuum regime. He developed bespoke multiscale methods for flow and transport in genuinely heterogeneous media where sub-scale information is communicated to the larger scales by means of multiscale basis functions. He also developed a multiscale method based on continuous-time random walk for problems involving mineral dissolution (reactive transport).
