Personal profile

Personal Statement

Gareth is a geologist with broad interests in energy geosciences. He has experience from both industry and academia in the fields of geochemistry and structural geology applied to carbon dioxide storage and negative emission technologies, geothermal energy, energy storage and oil, gas and mineral production. He enjoys inter-disciplinary research where he brings subsurface expertise and knowledge to wider research engaging with energy and associated waste production in a carbon constrained world.

Teaching Interests

Gareth currently teaches Geological Engineering (CL314). He also has wider teaching interests and experience in: Field Geology, Digital Mapping, Structural Modelling, Isotope Geochemistry, Climate Change, Geology of Western Canada.

Research Interests

Geomechanics, Structural Geology, Stable Isotope Geochemistry, Discrete Fracture Network modelling, Fault Seal Analysis, Monitoring Measurement and Verification (CCS), Negative emissions, CCS, Geothermal Energy, Energy decarbonisation, Energy storage, Uncertainty in geological data.
