Research Statement

My research interests focus on nano to reservoir scale geomechanical responses for pore pressure perturbations and thermo-chemical evolution. During my fellowship at the Stanford Center for Induced and Triggered Seismicity he developed the latest version of the Physics based Fault Slip Potential (FSP) software to account for differential stress orientation environments. In another project at Stanford, I simulated aseismic slip magnitude in the most seismically active part of the Delaware basin. Today, I'm working on frictional response experiments with regards to geothermal and carbon storage geologic environments; hydraulic fracturing propagation in iso-stress state conditions; poroelastic stress path modeling and Bayesian analysis for geomechanical properties prediction. 
I also have practical experience as a PI in multiple scientific projects. In the past three years, I served as a primary chair of the GeoEnergy Induced Seismicity session at the AGU Fall Meetings.
