My research interests concern the physics of fluid flow and deformation in porous media. Specifically, my research focus is on modeling coupled hydromechanical processes that occur as a consequence of the exploitation and management of subsurface energy resources. Significant applications include land subsidence prediction due to water or hydrocarbon extraction, and fluid injection in deep geologic formations for underground gas storage, deformation mitigation or geological carbon sequestration purposes.
