Research Interests:

  • Energy Geotechnology (Borehole heat exchangers, geothermal geostructures, CO2 sequestration).
  • Gas advective and diffusive flow in saturated and unsaturated porous media
  • Landfill design
  • Unsaturated behaviour of geomaterials.
  • Thermo-hydro-mechanical/chemical behaviour of porous media.
  • Contaminant transport through soils and geosynthetics.
  • Geosynthetics in landfills
  • Geosynthetics in mining applications (heap leach pads, tailing dams, etc.).
  • Earth reinforced structures
  • Ground Improvement (Shallow and deep soil mixing, dynamic compaction, stone columns,rigid inclusions).
  • Biological applications to Geotechnical & Geoenvironmental engineering.
  • Geotechnical properties of soft soils.
