Geophysical Imaging and Geomechanical Behaviour of Subsurface Reservoirs

I am an applied geophysicist whose studies the geomechanical impacts of subsurface human activities. Particular research interests include fault reactivation and induced seismicity during subsurface fluid injection; using geophysical methods such as micro-seismicity and seismic anisotropy to image rock fractures; and using computational modelling to simulate the geomechanical impact of subsurface activities.
