Dr Ayrton Soares Ribeiro

Postdoctoral Research Fellow

UQ Centre for Natural Gas
Faculty of Engineering, Architecture and Information Technology

Overview

Ayrton is completing a Post-Doc through The University of Queensland’s Energi Simulation Industrial Chair in Unconventional Onshore Gas Reservoir Modelling. The research chair is held by Professor Suzanne Hurter and is based at The University of Queensland Centre for Natural Gas (UQ-CCSG). Ayrton’s research interests include reservoir simulation, reactive transport (dissolution of minerals), CO2 EOR and Storage, and multiphase flow in fractured media.

Ayrton completed his PhD in Petroleum Engineering (dual degree between Heriot-Watt University and UFPE). His research topic was Modelling of Geochemical Reactions during CO2 WAG Injection in Carbonate Reservoirs.
