Research Interests

​Beside engineering geology I am especially interested in wellbore geomechanics and drilling. For my PhD program I would like to focus on sensors for drill bits with the aim of getting formation evaluation data. I want to investigate sensor principles and systems. I am also interested in electro-pulse-boring (EPB) – drilling of hard rocks by pulsed power, as well as pulse power drilling fluids.
