My research is currently focussed on the microseismic monitoring of carbon capture and storage (CCS) sites where CO2 is injected at depth for permanent storage to mitigate the problem of climate change. I'm interested in what microseismicity can tell us about the geomechanical response of a site to carbon dioxide injection and the migration of fluids with injection. I apply a wide range of seismological techniques based on my background in earthquake location, seismic source parameter estimation and tomography. 


I received a MPhys degree in Physics from the University of Manchester in 2000 and then went on to complete an MSc in Geophysics at Durham University. After a 15 month contract with the Geological Survey of Japan to study earthquake source parameters I returned to the UK to study for my DPhil in earthquake location methods at the University of Oxford. Subsequently, I have completed postdoctoral studies of seismic velocities in the Afar region of the East African rift and microseismic studies of carbon capture and storage sites.
