I received an Honours in Science from University of Waterloo in 2005-2010 with an undergraduate thesis focusing on Chemical Hydrology.
The Joint Master in Applied Geophysics piqued my interest and lead to the completion of my post graduate study in 2012. My master's thesis dealt with the study of the Muschelkalk aquifer in order to test its viability for CO2storage.
After having closely worked with the Rock Physics group at the Geological Institute (ETH Zurich) for my thesis, I decided to start a PhD in the same group in 2013. My project entails studying seismic wave propagation in reservoir rocks for the characterization of fractures by employing numerical modelling methods and conducting lab experiments.
