Research Interests

Current Research Project

Currently, I am investigating CO2-seawater-basalt interactions in the context of CO2-storage in the oceanic crust. The main objective of my research is the experimental investigation of coupled dissolution-precipitation reactions under conditions relevant for offshore CO2-storage, with a special focus on fluid flow properties and their effects on carbonate precipitation reactions. Furthermore, I am interested in the dissolution behavior of mineral surfaces, its spatial variations and kinetics, and how these factors influence the precipitation of secondary minerals.
