Akpewe M. Eroh


I am a doctoral candidate at the University of Leeds. I have a bachelor’s degree in physics (with electronics) from the University of Port Harcourt in 2008, and a master degree in engineering control systems and instrumentation in 2017 from the University of Huddersfield. Back home in my country I am an academic staff member in a tertiary institution, where I have worked for over eight year as a physics lecturer.

Research interests

My research interest is on single and multiphase fluid flow properties in geological formations (caprocks). My research focuses on assessing the integrity and sealing efficiency of the Mercia mudstone and sherwood sandstone in the UK as targeted sites for CO2 storage and disposal of radioactive waste, using a combination of laboratory experiments and numerical modeling.
