Michael Celia

BSE Adviser
Civil and Environmental Engineering

Professor Celia is the Theodora Shelton Pitney Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Princeton University, and currently serves as the Director of the Princeton Environmental Insttute. Professor Celia's areas of research include ground-water hydrology, multi-phase flow in porous media, numerical modeling, and subsurface energy systems with a focus on geological sequestration of carbon dioxide. Ongoing projects include development of new simulation tools to model CO2 injection, migration, and possible leakage associated with carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) technologies; studies of multi-phase flow and transport in porous media with a focus on multi-scale models; measurements of methane leakage from different hydrocarbon-related sources, and development of infrastructure to enable development of large-scale CCS.
