Wissenschaftliche Interessen:

I like to work on a wide range of problems in Earth Science using subsurface data, numerical models and mathematical methods. So far, I've worked on aspects of diagenesis, fault growth, subglacial processes and magmatic intrusions. If you would like to learn more about my research, check out my website:
