Energy geotechnical engineering – Energy Recovery - Understanding of geo-process including physical, chemical characterization and multi phases flow in petroleum, methane hydrate, geological CO2 sequestration, and geothermal energy, enhanced oil recovery. Sustainable use of engineered geo-material - Fundamental understanding into fabric formation and evolution, stiffness, friction, conduction, clogging, and thermo-hydro-chemo-bio-mechanical coupled process. Sensor application to geo-engineering - Development of sensor networking using elastic P-, S- and electromagnetic waves to monitor subsurface and pavement systems and to detect indiscriminant geo-events. Development of numerical tools - Development of thermal-hydraulic-chemical-mechanical coupled analyses tools, discrete element method (DEM) simulation taking into consideration of seepage forces, and pore networking model including experimental micro-model
