Research Interests

  1. Geostatistical modeling of nonstationary domains.
  2. Geostatistical models for environmental applications including CO2 sequestration and storage.
  3. Geostatistical models for temporal data.
  4. Use of numerical models in mine planning.
  5. Integration of multivariate data sets in numerical modeling.

Research Currently in Progress

  1. Reproduction of non-linear geological features such as channels, veins, complex folding, etc. This research uses the shortest path distance to integrate non-stationary anisotropy.
  2. Generation of anisotropy fields from available data such as point measurements, surfaces, interpreted volumes or geological analogues.
  3. Selection and use of training images with multiple point simulation algorithms.
  4. Assessment of variable importance with geometallurgical data (often >100 variables).
