Research interests

My research interests lie in the area of geo-materials engineering with a focus on advancing the understanding of coupled and reactive processes in soil and rock in relation to energy and environmental applications through experimental investigation and numerical modelling. 

  • Coupled thermal, hydraulic, chemical and mechanical behaviour of unsaturated soils. 
  • Chemo-mechanical processes under demanding environments (e.g. elevated temperature effects, rock matrix acidising)
  • Reactive transport modelling of chemicals and gas in porous media 
  • Clay barriers for geoenvironmental applications (e.g. geological disposal of HLW) 
  • Thermo-active geo-structures (e.g. ground-based energy systems)
