Jay Black's Profile Picture
Dr

Jay Black

 

Jay Black completed his BSc (Honours) and PhD at Monash University and moved to the United States to continue his research as a Postdoctoral Scholar and Assistant Researcher at the University of California, Davis and Los Angeles. He returned to Australia in 2011 to join the Cooperative Research Centre for Greenhouse Gas Technologies (CO2CRC) and Geoscience Australia pursuing research related to CO2 storage in Australian sedimentary basins.

He joined the University of Melbourne and Peter Cook Centre for CCS in 2013 as a Research Fellow with expertise on CO2 storage problems and environmental geochemistry.

The main focus of his research has been in the field of aqueous geochemistry working on interdisciplinary problems relevant to mineral processing, water-rock interactions and stable isotope signatures using experimental methods to aid in developing geochemical models. His current research uses elevated pressure-temperature equipment to study the reactivity of reservoir rocks under CO2 storage conditions and build those observations into reactive transport models for predicting the geochemical evolution of target CO2 storage reservoirs in Australia.
