Academic interests

My scientific work focuses mainly on cross-disiplinary problems between physics and geology, and especially fluid-rock interactions at or near the Earth's surface. In particular, I study:

  • CO2 sequestration in ultramafic rock
  • Gas hydrate stability and disassociation
  • Serpentinization
  • Chemical and mechanical weathering of rock
  • Volume changing processes in rock
  • Fracture formation
  • The coupling between fracture formation and transport of reactive fluids in fractures
  • Ice-driven fracturing
  • Numerical tools to study fracture formation
