Application of principles of theoretical and experimental mechanics to problems in resource engineering, civil engineering, and earth sciences, including:

  • fluid-driven fractures in the subsurface as pertain to hydrocarbon recovery, carbon sequestration, dykes and emplacement of magma;
  • wellbore integrity;
  • earthquake source processes, slip nucleation and propagation in fluid-infiltrated fault gouge zones;
  • strain localization and instability phenomena in fluid-infiltrated geomaterials
