Overview

Dr Zhenjiang You is a Senior Lecturer within the School of Chemical Engineering. He is the Coordinator of Petroleum Engineering programs, including Master of Petroleum Engineering, Master of Engineering (Petroleum Engineering), Master of Engineering Science (Petroleum Engineering), Master of Engineering Science Management (Petroleum Engineering) and Graduate Certificate of Engineering Science (Petroleum Engineering).

Dr You holds a PhD in Fluid Mechanics. He conducts research on mathematical modelling, numerical simulation and experimental study of flows in porous media, and their applications in petroleum engineering, chemical engineering, energy, environment and water resources. He develops new theories and models for colloidal/suspension transport in porous media, innovative technologies for enhanced gas/oil production, and applicable tools for petroleum reservoir engineering, production engineering and geothermal industry. He has received research funding support from ARC, NERA, DMITRE, ARENA and a range of Australian and international companies. He collaborates with researchers in Australia, Germany, Denmark, the Netherlands, China, Russia, USA, Brazil and Iran.

His teaching contributions include Reservoir Engineering, Well Test Analysis, Reservoir Simulation, Field Design Project, Mathematical Modelling and Fluid Mechanics for Petroleum Engineers, Formation Damage, Enhanced Oil and Gas Recovery, Unconventional Resources and Recovery, etc.

Research Interests
