Research

Meine Interessen sind in der Regel vor dem angewandten Hintergrund der geothermischen und/oder Kohlenwasserstoffexploration zu sehen und liegen derzeit in der Untersuchung von abnormalen Porendrücken, der Petrophysik von Sedimentgesteinen (insbesondere Tongesteine) während mechanischer und chemischer Kompaktion, Spannungsfeldanalyse sowie in der Analyse von Kluftnetzwerken mittels 3D-Aufschlussanalogstudien. Dabei geht es vor allem darum Reservoire besser zu beschreiben und neue Wege zur Minimierung des Explorations- und Erschließungs-/Bohrungsrisikos zu finden.
