I originally trained as a geologist, with a strong focus on structural geology and tectonics. I am currently working on problems in engineering geoscience. My main research interests are fault architecture, fault sealing and permeability, hydrology and structural geology.
I have recently completed a PhD on fault sealing and fault permeability. For this I studied outcrops of faults cutting sand-shale sequences. I have used a combination of fieldwork, numerical fluid-flow modelling and statistics to better understand the architecture and permeability of faults in sand-shale.
I am currently working on a number of projects, centred on the flow properties of faults and fracture networks. My main research at the moment focuses on the permeability of faults in shale. In addition I have worked with Georgios Yfantis at the Aquistore CO2 injection site. I have worked with PhD students at the Grimsel underground laboratory. Together with the University of Nanjing, I have visited the Beishan candidate site for the Chinese high-level radioactive waste repository.
