Research focus on structural geology, renewable energy and environmental studies. How to best characterize outcrops and exploit energy from subsurface. My research focus has recently been into developing novel methodology in how to measure permeability and characterize the structural permeability of fractures and faults. This research is of high importance to increase productivity of geothermal, hydrocarbon and CO2 reservoirs. Plastic pollution has become a national and global problem with severe consequences for the aquatic and coastal ecosystems. Focus areas, are the long term accumulation, the change of coastal landscape and the generation of microplastic due to accumulation of plastic litter in coastal areas.

Fields of expertise: Virtual outcrop geology, environmental mapping, reservoir geology, geothermal energy
