Areas of expertise:

My research spans multiple disciplines such as seismic reflection, basin analysis, stratigraphy, sedimentology, volcanology, igneous systems, and tectonics. I am enthusiastic to explore geoenergy resources, including geothermal energy and new CO2 and hydrogen geostorage technologies. Previous expertise includes five years working as a petroleum exploration geologist offshore Brazil, gold mining exploration in New Zealand, and over seven years as an academic researcher with the University of Canterbury, New Zealand. Since 2021, I have been working as a research specialist with the GTK’s Geoenergy Solutions Group, developing scientific and commercial projects designed to increase geothermal energy uptake in Nordic countries and globally. Currently, I am mostly interested to understand how the natural porosity and permeability of crystalline rocks can create opportunities for geothermal developments associated with crustal fault zones and ancient and modern igneous systems.
