Giammar_DanielDaniel Giammar, PhD collaborating with the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay

The global nature of climate change means that effective strategies to mitigate carbon dioxide emissions to the atmosphere require international engagement.  In our work on geologic carbon sequestration we have benefitted from collaborations with Anurag Mehra at the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay in exploring ways to model processes that can occur when carbon dioxide is injected deep underground.  Because our carbon-based energy infrastructure in the U.S. is relatively static, it is particularly exciting to work with Professor Mehra and other IIT Bombay professors on clean energy technologies in a country that is rapidly expanding its energy generating capacity.
