Beautiful Landscape
Rock Mechanics and Geomechanics
for sustainable infrastructure and earth resources
Our research combines an array of approaches, including laboratory/field experiments, computational modeling, and analytical solutions, to understand the mechanical and hydraulic behaviour of rocks and fractures under subsurface environments. We are interested in coupled thermal–hydrological–mechanical–chemical (THMC) processes in fractured rocks and clay formations with applications in the context of energy transition (subsurface nuclear waste disposal, geothermal energy extraction, hydrogen storage. etc).
