My thesis research is focused on the injection of CO2 enriched gases through ultramafic mine tailings for carbon sequestration. Efficient large-scale gas circulation requires understanding of how the tailings transmit fluids and how reaction kinetics ultimately lead to carbon mineralization. I conduct field trials aimed to demonstrate the efficacy of deploying this sequestration strategy at the mine scale.
