Professor Celia's areas of research include ground-water hydrology, multi-phase flow in porous media, numerical modeling, and subsurface energy systems with a focus on geological sequestration of carbon dioxide and shale-gas systems. Ongoing projects include development of new simulation tools to model CO2 injection, migration, and possible leakage associated with carbon capture and geological sequestration (CCS); multi-scale modeling of fluid flow and contaminant transport in porous and fractured media; modeling CO2 injection into highly reactive rocks; analysis of large-scale infrastructure development for commercial-scale CCS operations; and measurements of methane leakage to the atmosphere along old oil and gas wells and other hydrocarbon infrastructure. The CCS work is part of a large industry-funded multi-disciplinary effort at Princeton known as the Carbon Mitigation Initiative.
