Tom is a Postdoctoral Reseach Fellow in the Institue of Applied Geosciences. His PhD research investigated risks and uncertainties for geological CO2 storage in the UK, including CO2 storage capacity estimates and reservoir fracture pressures. His current research interests focus on laboratory and numerical methods for investigating fracturing in caprocks for CO2 storage reservoirs and temperature effects on fracture pressures.
