Our team working in the field of Geomechanics focus on fundamental and applied research related to the design of mining systems, underground environments, and geological systems. Of particular interest is the safety of current technologies and new challenges driven by emerging technologies related to future energy. 

Geomechanics provide a means to design safe, sustainable, and effective minerals and energy resources operations. The systems considered often involve coupled processes and complex multi-physics that require an interdisciplinary skill set. We work collaboratively with industry partners on mine safety and design, coupled geomechanical systems, and exploration/production systems. We have three main themes within our Geomechanics flagship.
