> Research interests
My research is focussed on seismicity, that is induced in the surroundings of geothermal exploration and production, hydrocarbon extraction or deep waste water disposal. In my work, I study the elastic, poroelastic and inelastic changes of the tectonic stress field due to forced fluid flow and seismic and aseismic deformations in reservoirs. Further interests are on the tectonic stress field, borehole stability and the time-dependent behaviors in rock mechanics from the laboratory to the fault zone scale. Continue reading...
