Research Interests

Main topics

  • Geomechanics of CO2 sequestration
  • Thermo-Hydro-Chemo-Mechanical couplings in fluids-filled geomaterials
  • Finite Element modelling of coupled geomechanical problems

Applications :

  • Offshore geotechnics (behaviour of deep marine sediments)
  • Nuclear waste disposals (THM modelling)
  • Embankments in areas liable to floodings (soils-atmosphere interactions)
  • Chalk carries (time effects and partial saturation)
  • Geothermal piles
