Profile

Research

Professor Rob Knipe, Director of Fault Seal the Rock Deformation Research Group is concerned with the identification and quantification of deformation processes associated with tectonic events. A recipient of Geological Society awards for his work on deformation processes at fault zones his current research interests, in collaboration with a significant number of hydrocarbon exploration and production companies, includes; permeability barriers and fault sealing; interaction between fluid flow, deformation and mineralisation and the characterisation and evolution of fracture and fault populations.
