Short presentation

I am PhD candidate in Geohydrology working on Performance Assessment of nuclear waste repositories. My research is focused on flow and transport of radionuclides from repositories to the biosphere through faults & fractures in geological barriers, in an event of failure of the engineered barriers.

As a participant of the DECOVALEX project, I am adopting numerical modelling and simulation approach to perform wide range of computational analysis for different scenarios of contaminant transport.

Keywords: contaminant flow and transport discrete fracture networks (dfn) thermo-hydro-mechanical (thm) coupling performance assessment

Nicholas Izuchukwu Osuji is a PhD candidate in geohydrology group at the department of Earth Sciences in Uppsala University. He obtained his bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering from Federal University of Technology Owerri, Nigeria and master's degree in Petroleum Engineering from China University of Petroleum, Beijing. His master's thesis was on hydraulic fracturing techniques for development of unconventional shale formations. At Uppsala University, his research is focused on modelling of coupled Thermo-Hydro-Mechanical (THM) processes in fractured crystalline rock for performance assessment of nuclear waste repositories. This involves uncertainty evaluation and sensitivity analysis of conceptual model representation and heterogeneity simplification of the geological barriers.
