interests include experimental and theoretical aspects of the rock-physics with
a particular emphasis on anisotropic shales. Experimental interests
embrace the observation of mechanical, hydraulic and other properties as a
function of lithology, composition, and stress.
Theoretical aspects introduce numerical modeling, which describes
observed mechanisms. Understanding these processes is important for the seismic
exploration and monitoring, especially in the anisotropic or fractured
sediments, but also for the reservoir engineering and wellbore stability
