DR MARCUS CARNEIRO

marcus carneiro Marcus is a Computer Scientist who graduated at Universidade Federal de Lavras (Brazil). He holds a Ph.D in Computational Physics from ETH Zurich (Switzerland), and later worked in an industry-based research project at ORG-Geophysical (Norway) through a Marie-Curie (ITN) Fellowship, which focused on electromagnetic methods for hydrocarbon exploration. His general research interests are numerical methods and scientific and high performance computing applied to geosciences. Marcus joined the Fault Analysis Group (through his Irish Centre for Research in Applied Geoscience (iCRAG) and, in 2016, where he is collaborating with Tom Manzocchi on the development of geomodelling approaches and software.

DR CONRAD CHILDS

Conrad Childs Tullow Lecturer in Structural Geology. A graduate of University College Cork with an MSc in Structural Geology from Imperial College, Conrad completed a PhD on the structure and hydraulic properties of faults from the University of Liverpool. Conrad has been a member of the group since 1987 and a Joint Director since 2005. His current interests include the growth of fault zones and fault systems, the impact of faults on fluid flow and the application of DEM (discrete element method) mechanical modelling approaches to many technical issues related to faulting.

DR JOHN CONNEALLY

John Conneally John obtained his BSc in Geology from UCD in in 2010, and his PhD with the Fault Analysis Group in 2014 on the kinematics of segment boundaries on normal faults. He worked as a geologist in the mining industry in Ireland for a few years before joining iCRAG (and rejoining the Fault Analysis Group) to work on the 3-D modelling of the Irish onshore.

DR STRATOS DELOGKOS

Stratos Delogkos Stratos graduated with a BSc and MSc from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki School of Geology. He started his collaborations with the Fault Analysis Group during his MSc research on the structure of faults in the Ptolemais basin lignite mimes. Following the award of his PhD from UCD in 2016 on 3D fault zone achitecture in Kardia mine, Statos remained as a post-doctoral reseacher within the Fault Analysus group contributing to a number of projects. His current focus is on understanding the evolution of perched Mesozoic rift basins along the eastern margin of the Rockall Trough, as part of the Energy Security challenge of the Irish Centre for Research in Applied Geoscience (iCRAG).

DR TOM MANZOCCHI

Dr Tom Manzocchi Associate Professor. A graduate of Imperial College, Tom joined the group in February 1997 after completing a PhD at Heriot-Watt University on the geometry and modelling of faults and fault networks and their impact on fluid flow. Tom has been Joint Director of the group since 2005, and his principal research interests include the impact of faults and other fractures on fluid flow, the geometry and kinematics of fault and fracture systems, and the development of methods for modelling faulted (and unfaulted) rock volumes.

DR VINCENT ROCHE

Vincent Research Fellow. Vincent Roche joined the Fault Analysis Group as a post-doctorate fellow in May 2015. His current research focuses on structural and geomechanical analysis of faults. Previously, Vincent held a post-doctorate position at the University of Alberta, where he performed geomechanical analysis on induced microseismicity. Vincent completed a PhD in 2011 from the University of Paris 6, France, where he investigated the role of layering on fault growth and fault geometry.

PROFESSOR JOHN WALSH

Dr John Walsh Professor. John has been with the group since its inception in 1985 and was its Director from 1996 to 2005. A graduate of University College Dublin in 1980, John undertook a PhD at University College Galway on the Norwegian Caledonides prior to joining the group. As Joint Director, John's research interests include the long- and short-term (i.e. earthquake) growth of fault systems, the impact of faults on fluid-flow on a range of scales (e.g. basin to mineral deposit), and the definition of new analytical and modelling techniques for a range of fault-related technical issues.
