Research Interests

  • Use of microbially mediated mineral precipitation for ground improvement and ground sealing
  • Development and application of colloidal silica-based grouts for ground improvement and ground sealing
  • Development of detectable cementitious grouts for reliable barrier formation
  • Fluid flow in geological faults, estimating fault permeability (particular relevance to radioactive waste disposal, CO2 sequestration and oil and gas exploitation)
  • The relationaship between fault permeability and seismicity - temporal and spatial evolution
  • Predicting ground permeability through structural geology and rock mechanics
  • Groundwater flow and contaminant transport
  • Rock mechanics and structural geology
  • Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems
  • Computer modelling
