Structural Geology, Fracture Characterization, Brittle Deformation, Fracture Flow Modeling


Research Interests

Michael is a structural geologist specializing in the brittle deformation that takes place in the upper crust of the earth. He is a quantitative, field-based structural geologist who analyzes mesostructures such as joints, faults and veins in an attempt to understand their formation, distribution and impact on subsurface fluid flow. His current research activity focuses on fractured reservoir characterization, the influence of mechanical stratigraphy on fracture development, and flow through fracture networks in layered rocks.
