Jingxuan Deng

Ph.D. Student

I am a Ph.D. student in the Department of Earth & Environmental Sciences at the University of Minnesota. I obtained my M.S. degree in 2020 from University of Stuttgart in Germany and joined Kang Research Group in 2021. My current research focuses on mixing and reaction at fracture intersections. I conduct pore-scale numerical simulations and microfluidics experiments to visualize and establish mechanistic understanding of mixing and reaction at 3D fracture intersections. Additionally, I perform modeling at a larger scale to investigate how mineral dissolution and precipitation affect the flow and transport dynamics of fracture networks.

On a more personal note, I was born and raised in Guangdong, China. Between my busy research schedule, I like to relax by working out, taking care of household tasks, and occasionally enjoying a beer. When I have some free time, I also enjoy visiting museums, going for hikes, watching anime, and having hot pot with friends.
