Research Interests

Geophysicist with expertise in laboratory-scale and borehole-scale investigations of petrophysical and geomechanical properties of rocks with applications towards reservoir characterisation, heat transfer and fluid flow modeling in  subsurface. My research interests extends to fracture network characterisation and modeling with applications in geothermal systems, oil and gas reservoirs, CO2 storage and nuclear waste disposal. Recent work includes static and dynamic modelling in fractured carbonates of Geneva basin to assess geothermal energy potential for heating purposes. Previous works were focused on multi-disciplinary investigations in super-hot geothermal fields and enhanced geothermal systems in Mexico.
