Martin is a research assistant at the International Geothermal Centre in the Reservoir Engineering and Rock Physics group. Currently, Martin is a master student from the Institute of Geology, Mineralogy and Geophysics at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum. He recently submitted his master thesis entitled: “Discontinuity and matrix characterization of potential hydraulic conductivity in the Devonian Reef Complex at northern Wuppertal, Hagen Hohenlimburg and Hönnetal.”.
His main interest is the link between properties of fractured and porous rocks and their scale dependence. Therefore, Martin is combining his knowledge about fault propagation and behaviour in the field with his expertise in laboratory experiments and X-ray computed microtomography.
