Research Interests

I am a geophysicist with focus on subsurface imaging, tectonic process and natural geohazard potential using Magnetotellurics (MT) method. Recent interests focus on determining the geothermal gradient in Ireland using geophysical EM methods and identifying the available low-enthalpy geothermal resources at reservoir scale in the Munster Basin, i.e., Mallow warm springs in context of D.I.G project (https://dig-geothermal.ie/).
