Research Interests

Syed is working on developing the physical model, considering nano-pores spread all along the surface on micro-capillaries and feeding gas into it. The goal is to see, how the total outflow is affected in the capillary because of continuous and discontinuous feed from the nano-​pores. As organic pores stores most of the gases in the nano-pores. This new model has the potential to explain increased gas production in shales.
