Jinjie Mao has just joined the Department of Geoscience and Petroleum at NTNU to undertake her PhD project in the field of reservoir engineering. Her main supervisor is Associate Professor Ashkan Jahanbani Ghahfarokhi and the co-supervisor is Professor Curtis Hays Whitson.
Jinjie’s project, “Advanced Modeling – Optimization Framework for Sustainable Utilization of the Subsurface by CO2 Injection” is under BRU21 program and CEORS Gemini Centre. The research will contribute to the sustainable utilization of the subsurface by developing digital solutions for modeling and optimization of CO2 injection for subsurface storage and enhanced recovery purposes.
Prior to joining NTNU, Jinjie worked as a Reservoir Engineer at China National Offshore Oil Corporation. Jinjie holds a Bachelor of Science in Resource Prospecting Engineering (Minors in English Language and Literature) from Yangtze University, and a Master of Science in Geo-energy Engineering from Delft University of Technology (TU Delft). Her master thesis was on “Modelling of Polymer Flooding based on Operator-Based Linearization Approach”.
