Research Interests

I am a numerical geoscientist specialised in geo-thermo-mechanics. My Ph.D. project has the ambition to enligthen the induced seism occuring in deep geothermal reservoirs. To do so I am using MOOSE frame work, a finite element/volume software implemented by constitutive equations. This project is included among 13 other Ph.D. projects researching safety and efficiency in geothermal energy.
