Professor of General and Applied Mineralogy at the Institut für Mineralogie, Universtität Münster, Germany
I am the PI for the 2 FlowTrans projects at the University of Munster and supervisor for Stephen Centrella and Elisabete Pedrosa.
The FlowTrans ITN research relates to the porosity generation during fluid-rock interaction
The first project will track fluid flow through fluid-altered rocks in Norway by a combination of microscopic and analytical techniques. Stephen will be involved in this research.
The second project will study porosity generation during hydrothermal reactions between rocks and various fluid compositions. Elisabete will be involved in this research.
My background is in mineralogy and petrology. I worked at Cambridge University for 25 years before moving to Munster in 1995.
