Research Interests

My research focuses on different processes affecting efficiency of geothermal operations. Particularly, I am interested in assessing physical, chemical and biological mechanisms causing injectivity decline during reinjection of geothermal fluid. In my PhD I will study the influence of individual parameters on clogging as well as coupling of these processes. This work will be based on the analysis of field data from different sites and consequent laboratory experiments.
