Research interests

My research interest is on the development and use of seismic methods to characterize crack properties in geothermal settings. Fractures represents natural pathways for fluid flow and are an essential feature for permeability in reservoirs.

Aligned cracks are likely to exhibit seismic anisotropy, i.e. the variation of wavespeeds with the direction of propagation. The effect of a fracture network on seismic anisotropy is controlled by its compliance, which is in turn sensitive to the fluid fill and fluid flow properties.

This projects aims to analyse seismic anisotropy of seismic datasets to characterize fracture permeability. In this context, field experiments and rock physic modelling will be combined.
