Chancellor's Fellow in Energy
Welcome to my Edinburgh University blog pages.
I am currently the Chancellor’s Fellow in Energy at the School of Geosciences, University of Edinburgh. I trained as a reservoir geologist and am committed to advancing and transforming understanding of subsurface characterisation and multiphase reactive transport through porous media for the secure and sustainable utilisation of subsurface water resources, energy storage and low-carbon energy generation through state of the art experiments and benchmarking of numerical modelling.
I have developed the Applied Geoscience Laboratory which aims to advance and transform the understanding of subsurface characterisation, containment and multiphase reactive transport flow, through cutting-edge experiments benchmarked against numerical models to create real-world solutions to energy supply and water resource management in a responsible and sustainable way. My original evidence-based research adopts a cross-disciplinary approach which has included international collaborations with applications in a number of diverse fields that have given me a wide-ranging and expanding research portfolio in the areas of subsurface energy storage; carbon capture and storage; unconventional hydrocarbon reservoirs; water management; environmental monitoring & mitigation and subsurface risk assessment.
