Research Interests:

  • experimental rock physics/ fluid physics at simulated in-situ conditions
  • fluid-rock interaction in the subsurface and its impact on the hydraulic, elastical, electrical and capillary properties of reservoir rocks under consideration of chemical and microstructural changes
  • fluid transport properties in porous media
  • supercritial fluids
  • development of new experimental methodologies


since 2009:    Research Associate, German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ), Potsdam in 
                     the section Gethermal Energy Systems (fromerly Reservoir Technologies)
2005 – 2009:  Post-Doc, German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ), Potsdam in the section
