I am a geoscientist working at the intersection of geology, flow in porous media, geomechanics and seismology to address pressing questions related to geoenergy and the environment. I approach these questions through a combination of computational tools (physics-based simulation, statistical modeling, data analysis) with the goal of quantifying answers and their uncertainty.
I am currently doing my PhD with Prof. Ruben Juanes, and my work focuses on geologic CO2 storage. Specifically, I am targeting the following two areas:
Development of new computer models to characterize the hydraulic properties of faults.
Numerical modeling of CO2 storage, with emphasis on fault zones and their impact on fluid migration.
Before starting my PhD, I worked with seismic signals generated by earthquakes and other processes.
Fault zone development, architecture and hydraulic property characterization
Geologic CO2 storage, H2 storage and geothermal energy
Geologic hazard assessment in subsurface fluid extraction and injection, including fault leakage and induced seismicity
Environmental seismology (i.e., using seismic signals to study surface processes such as landslides or rockfalls)
