Tiange Xing

Postdoctoral associate

My research interests include fluid-rock interaction and its effect on the brittle rock deformation. My general research tools include the conventional tri-axial deformation apparatus and the synchrotron based in-situ x-ray nano/micro-tomography. My current research focuses on the effect of fluid-rock interaction on brittle creep deformation of basaltic rocks. The aim of my research is to advance the understanding of the time-dependent deformation of basalt in chemically active environment with ongoing rock-fluid interactions as well as provide insights into the long-term stability of basaltic reservoir rocks and guide future industrial applications including oil and gas recovery, geological CO2 storage and waste disposal in basaltic formations.
