Geomechanics from first principles
Theory & experiments
Welcome to the Geo-Energy Lab – Gaznat Chair on Geo-Energy website
We are working on fundamentals & applied research problems associated with sub-surface projects with a strong focus on the energy transition (deep geo-thermal energy, CO2 storage, Gas production & storage, radioactive waste storage).
We are notably working on the multi-physics coupling occurring during the rupture of geomaterials.
Our research aims at both improving industry practices and providing to decision makers, regulatory bodies and the public expertise on fundamental and practical problems related to Geo-Energy.
Do not hesitate to contact us for more details.

Ankit Gupta joins as a post-doctoral scientist
Dr Ankit Gupta has joined the GeoEnergy lab in January 2023 as a post-doctoral scientist and will work on developing a fully-coupled BEM/FEM framework to study fluid-driven shear rupture on pre-existing fractures.
Emil Gallyamov joins as a post-doctoral scientist
Dr Emil Gallyamov joins as a post-doctoral scientist to work on the ENAC Interdisciplinary Cluster grants (2022) “OSGEOCGS" – An Open-Source platform for Geomechanical assessment of CO2 Geological Storage.
Lucas Pereira receives the research prize of Ecole Polytechnique
Lucas Pereira has received the prestigious prize for the best research internship of the Ecole Polytechnique (also known as X), France for his work performed at EPFL geo-Energy lab. Due to the Covid-19 situation, Lucas did his internship entirely remotely with weekly interactions via Zoom.
