FlowTrans ITN Early Stage Researcher
CNRS Researcher in Geophysics, Institute for Globe Physics, CNRS/University of Strasbourg, France
My FlowTrans research will focus on the evolution of tight rocks during fluid injections: channeling, fracturing and mechanical instabilities due to fast fluid flows
I also work on waves on thin plates, source localization acoustic waves and microseismicity.
We are doing experiments in a rectangular Hele-Shaw cell with granular material to predict and control the mechanical stability of rock formations and soils during the injection or extraction of fluids. There is a paper recently published linking the acoustic emissions and mechanics of aero-fractures in a Hele-Shaw cell available in Frontiers. http://journal.frontiersin.org/article/10.3389/fphy.2015.00070/abstract
In my undergraduate period, I studied Civil Engineering in Turkey. Then, I continued my studies with Erasmus Mundus Masters of Earthquake Engineering and Engineering Seismology Programme in UJF Grenoble and IUSS Pavia (Rose School). As a researcher, I like playing with waves, investigating mechanics of granular materials and fluids.
In my daily life I like involving with modern dances, often hiking, swimming, and exploring medieval history.
