Mark Zoback, Benjamin M. Page Professor

Department of Geophysics

I conduct research on in situ stress, fault mechanics, and reservoirgeomechanics. I was one of the principal investigators of the SAFOD projectin which a scientific research well was successfully drilled through the SanAndreas Fault at seismogenic depth. Most of my current work is in the fieldsof reservoir geomechanics, carbon sequestration and intraplate seismicity.
