Areas of Research

Geomechanics of gas hydrates
Our group explores the science and engineering of gas hydrate bearing sediments through fundamental to applied research. We use advanced numerical analysis, innovative laboratory testing, and in situ sampling to garner insight into the properties and behaviours of these unique sediments. These micro and macro properties are scaled up to develop the methodologies and technologies required for production of methane gas from hydrate accumulations, to understand the role of hydrates in climate change, and to quantify their effect on submarine slope instabilities.
