Personal profile

Research interests

My research interest covers general geology, geomechanics and structural geology disciplines with emphasis on fractures and fault seal analyses, characterization and modeling for oil and gas, and renewable energy, and research in experimental and numerical modeling of hydraulic fracturing, fractures related diagenesis, mineralization and cementation, and physical analog modeling.

In civil and geotechnical engineering, my research interest includes dam safety issues, scouring associated with offshore wind towers (filed for a patent), and geothermal energy, micro-sensors applications (patented) to monitor hydraulic fractures mapping in deep reservoirs, engineering facilities including embankment dams integrity, headrace tunnels and bedrock integrity.

Other research interest covers the applications of neural networks to geological and engineering data.
