Research Assistant Professor
Chen Gruber is a Research Assistant Professor in the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering, Vanderbilt University. He obtained his Ph.D. in 2017 in Geology and Environmental Sciences from Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Israel. Chen’s research focusing on integration of advanced geochemical reactive transport modeling with experiments designed to understand underlying fundamental processes.
His current research focusing on water-rock-cement interaction along carbonate rocks and cement interfaces and how it might affect cement integrity and the fate of radionuclide transport to the environment. The research combining reactive transport modeling and laboratory experiments for in-depth understanding of both chemical and transport processes.
