Kerrou, Jaouher

My research is mainly focused on modelling flow, heat and mass transport processes in heterogeneous porous and fractured media. I have been responsible of multiple international projects including multispecies reactive transport modelling, seawater intrusion problems and the sustainable groundwater resources management. From 2008, I’m involved in a major groundwater modelling project for nuclear waste storage in deep geological formations.
