I am a research fellow in the Subsurface CO2 Research Group at Imperial. I investigate coupled thermo-hydro-mechanical-chemical (THMC) processes relevant to geo-energy applications, with focus on understanding the geomechanical response of the subsurface to fluid injection/extraction. I have been awarded a MSCA postdoctoral fellowship (UKRI Postdoctoral Guarantee) for the project THMC4CCS, which aims at improving the knowledge on coupled processes in geologic CO2 storage through a combination of laboratory experiments and numerical simulations. Prior to joining Imperial, I was a researcher at Spanish National Research Council where I employed my research to understand and develop predictive models of fluid injection-induced seismicity.
