RESEARCH & ONGOING PROJECTS

 

RESEARCH

My research is focusing on sediment and rock deformation and in-situ stress and its measurements. Major Ongoing projects are (1) Building and Developing a infrastructure for measuring the complete in-situ rock stress field in slim boreholes to 3 km depth; (2) in -situ stress measurements in Norway within the NEONOR2 project [1] ; (3) project leader of the TRUST project [2] on infrastructure; (4) Developing Scientific Drilling Proposal to drill mail glacial faults in North Sweden in the DAFNE project [3] ; and (5) rock mechanical properties of the CO2 reservoir rock.
