Research Interests

My research is focused on electromagnetic (EM) methods in geophysical prospecting, which aim at studying the electrical conductivity distribution of the subsurface. I am especially interested in the application of EM methods to geothermal exploration. Besides surface methods such as magnetotellurics I am investigating the capability of downhole and crosswell EM sounding techniques for monitoring processes during fluid injection in enhanced geothermal systems.
