Dr. Yukie Tanino is a Lecturer in the School of Engineering at University of Aberdeen. Prior to joining the University in 2012, she was a postdoctoral research associate in the Department of Earth Science and Engineering at Imperial College London (2009-2012) and in Laboratoire Fluides, Automatique et Systèmes Thermiques in France (2008-2009). Dr. Tanino holds a B.S. (Environmental Engineering Science), M.S. (Civil and Environmental Engineering), and PhD (Environmental Fluid Mechanics) from Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
Dr. Tanino’s research interests are in the fluid dynamics of, and mass transport in, obstructed flows such as those found in geological reservoirs, groundwater aquifers, and flood plains. At Aberdeen Dr. Tanino leads the Subsurface Flow and Transport Laboratory located in the School of Engineering, and currently supervises/co-supervises 12 PhD students in the Schools of Engineering and Geosciences. She also teaches enhanced oil recovery and flow assurance to students on the MSc programmes in Subsea Engineering, Petroleum Engineering, and Oil & Gas Engineering and the MEng programme in Petroleum Engineering.
