My research is in petrophysics - the study of rock properties and their interactions with fluids.

My interest is especially centred on geologically based petrophysics, including conventional and unconventional reservoirs, such as shale gas, coal bed methane and gas hydrates, as well as subsurface rock characterisation.

Current research includes interpretation and integration of core and downhole data, petrophysics for shale gas reservoirs, and the development of novel approaches to petrophysics education.
