Overview

Lee is a Research Associate at the Geoenvironmental Research Centre and leads the Carbon Sequestration in Coal and Soil work package of the £24 million FLEXIS energy systems research project. He received his PhD from Cardiff University in 2014, having graduated with a First Class (Hons) MEng degree in Civil Engineering, also from Cardiff University.

Expertise

Lee's research interests lie in the theoretical and numerical modelling of coupled physical and chemical behaviour in geomaterials. He is particularly experienced in the study of multiphase, multicomponent chemical-gas flow in dual-porous geomaterials, where behaviour is strongly divided between distinct pore regions. It is in this area that he developed new capabilities of the COMPASS numerical simulation software. His application of the enhanced model has focused on the flow and storage of CO2 in coal seams with an emphasis on CO2 sorption-induced coal swelling, which remains a barrier to the effective use of the world's remaining coal resources for CO2 sequestration.

Alongside his work on CO2 sequestration in coal, Lee has worked as part of multidisciplinary teams in the areas of soil carbon dynamics and ground source heat extraction.

Postgraduate student supervision

Lee currently supervises a PhD student funded through the China Scholarship Council, working on the inclusion of multi-scale fractures in COMPASS using a hybrid dual continuum-discrete fracture approach.
