Vargas Lab Group



Our research group is focused on developing innovative experimental approaches and simulation tools to understand and predict the structure, phase behavior, thermodynamic and transport properties of complex fluids, at high temperatures and pressures.

An important component of our current research program is dedicated to finding solutions to major flow assurance problems in the oil industry, such as asphaltene deposition.

We are also interested in developing integrated approaches for an efficient and sustainable enhancement of the production of conventional and unconventional energy resources.
