PhD projects in geophysical methods are available with Professor Andrei Swindisky starting in the 2021/22 academic year….
PhD project 1
To improve exploration for blind hydrothermal systems. Can novel ground and airborne EM measurements be used to better explore for deeply buried blind hydrothermal systems?
PhD project 2
To increase exploration depth in the search for critical minerals. Can novel ground and airborne EM measurements be used to increase the exploration depth for critical mineral deposits buried under cover?
PhD project 3
To characterize artificial fractures in enhanced geothermal systems (EGS). How can EM methods be used to image the distribution of artificial fractures in an enhanced geothermal system?
PhD project 4
To develop reservoir monitoring tools for subsurface carbon dioxide (CO2) storage. How can EM methods be used to monitor carbon capture & storage processes in the presence of steel infrastructure?
