Research summary

I am currently a third year PhD student in the School of Earth Sciences at the University of Bristol studying the physical mechanisms behind injection-induced seismicity and fault reactivation. I use techniques employed in observational seismology, geomechanical modelling, reservoir geomechanics, and statistics to analyse large microseismic datasets from hydraulic fracturing operations around the world.

Much of my work has focused on using elastostatic models to study the continued propagation of seismicity, in order to inform monitoring practises and regulation (e.g. "traffic-light" schemes). This has been combined with fault stability analysis, to determine the likelihood of failure for faults near ...
