My primary research is on the development of original computational models of coupled hydro-elastodynamic processes in fractured porous media, including fluid flow, poroelastic stress, as well as flow-induced dynamic rupture, slow slip, (micro)seismic source response and seismic wave propagation. I seek numerical solutions of these problems using self-developed and customized code capable of efficient treatment of discrete fractures and the associated physics. I also apply these computational models to investigate a variety of coupled reservoir-geomechanical / geophysical problems, typically involving discontinuities. Throughout my research, I seek not only an in-depth understanding of the fundamental physics but also a good command of discretization methods (particularly the finite element method) and strong coding skills for solving mathematical problems at hand.
