Sanchay Mukherjee is a PhD student in the Department of Energy and Mineral Engineering at the Pennsylvania State University. He is working under the guidance of Dr. Russell T. Johns. Sanchay holds a Bachelor’s degree and a Master’s degree in Petroleum Engineering from University of Petroleum and Energy Studies (India) and University of Oklahoma (US) respectively. In his current research, Sanchay is trying to explain the underlying physics in relative permeability hysteresis using Pore Network Modeling (PNM) simulations.
Ang Liu is a Ph.D Candidate in the Department of Energy and Mineral Engineering at The Pennsylvania State University. He is working under the supervision of Dr. Shimin Liu. Ang has been working on the challenging issue of multi-mechanistic gas/water transport in intact reservoirs and the much more difficult task of completely de/reconstructed reservoirs – he has mastered geomechanics, transport characteristics and high-level characterization techniques to make an impact in his research studies.
Wei Zhang is a PhD Candidate in the Department of Energy and Mineral Engineering at The Pennsylvania State University. He is working under the supervision of professor Amin Mehrabian. Wei holds a Bachelor’s degree and a Master’s degree in Petroleum Engineering from China University of Petroleum (East China).
