Research Interests

  • Sequestration of anthropogenic CO2 emissions through a geological approach.
  • Modelling the physical constraints on the applicability of the injection of supercritical CO2 into deep-sea basalt.
  • Geochemistry of carbonate veins into the samples from IODP Exp 320/321 named "PEAT" (Pacific Equatorial Age Transect).
