My research interests are in applied geophysics, mineral physics and fracture mechanics and fluid-rock interactions. My main interest is in experimental hydrothermal reactive transport and evolution of physical properties of rocks during serpentinization reactions. I have also worked on models of fluid flow and heat transfer at seafloor hydrothermal systems at mid ocean ridges.
I am currently looking for an undergraduate student in the projects listed below:
1- Using technology in geoscience and collecting geologic data, the project includes working with devices such as: ARsandbox, EMriver (Stream table), small Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (sUAV). For more information about this project or other possible projects feel free to contact me.
