Biography

Dr. Hongkyu Yoon is a technical staff in the Geoscience Research and Applications Group at Sandia National Laboratories, Albuquerque, NM. His research areas include hydrogeology and reactive transport experiments and modeling, digital rock physics of geomaterials, chemo-mechanical coupling, reservoir characterization and simulations, and high-fidelity inverse modeling and uncertainty quantification. His research involves building and implementing a framework to analyze well-characterized laboratory experiments and field-scale observation data coupled with single- and multi-phase flow and reactive transport modeling across scales (e.g., pore to field) to develop the predictive model at a large-scale from smaller scales. His current projects focus on multiscale multiphase flow and reactive transport with applications to geological carbon sequestration and unconventional resources recovery, shale geomaterial characterization, and high-fidelity inverse modeling and uncertainty quantification. Dr. Yoon obtained a Ph.D degree in Environmental Engineering in Civil Engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2005 and has ~30 peer-reviewed publications.
