Personal profile

Research interests

My research interests focus on the microscale mechanisms that control the frictional behaviour of fault materials. Using laboratory experiments, microstructural investigations and microphysical modelling, I aim to determine the microscale deformation mechanisms that lead to stable versus unstable fault slip. In the Lyell Centre, I use this approach in the context of for example Enhanced Geothermal Systems, Carbon Capture and Storage, energy storage and hydrofracturing operations. Fluid injection during these operations may lead to reactivation of pre-existing faults which can lead to induced seismicity in the case fault slip is unstable.
