Our group studies nano-scale geological processes central to hydrology and the oil and gas industry. We use a diverse array of methods, combining cutting edge lab technology, state-of-the-art modeling, and field work. Current research projects include:

  • Measuring mineral reaction rates during geological carbon sequestration
  • Imaging crystal growth in nano-pores
  • Analysing mechanical properties of rocks at the nano-scale

I am currently looking for creative students with backgrounds in Earth Sciences, Chemistry, and Physics to join our team. Students in the group are part of a dynamic research program that is developing exciting new projects at the interface between hydrology, geology, and geochemistry.
