We use mathematical models and geophysical data analysis to understand and reconstruct subsurface processes on various spatial and temporal scales.

The impact of human intervention in the subsurface, including CO2 sequestration, geothermal energy production and unconventional (coal seam gas) extraction, are the primary focus of our studies. 

Our research activities contribute to the enhancement of geostatistical methods and data inference techniques.

A key component of our work is geophysical data inversion, involving processing and interpretation of both seismic and non-seismic data, for imaging and monitoring of the subsurface.

Our group has extensive experience in scientific software development and parallelization of large-scale data processing and simulations. 

The research on modelling of onshore gas extraction at UQ is supported by the Canadian Energi Simulation Foundation. Here we look into new ways of building static and dynamic models to improve gas forecasting and water management.
