My main research interests are groundwater flow in fracture-dominated media and changes occurring in pore space connectivity during EGS development. I focus on tracer techniques to investigate the properties and characteristics of the groundwater flow paths in order to address the changes. This topic also leads me to study solute and particle transport associated with tracer experiments, with particular interest in the evaluation of a novel type of tracer called DNA nanotracer, which is a potential tracer candidate to be used in geothermal reservoir characterization.
