DR GIOVANNI CAMANNI

Giovanni Research Fellow. Giovanni completed his geology degree at the University of Torino in 2010, and he then undertook a Phd study at the University of Barcelona on the structure and kinematics of the south-central part of the Taiwan thrust belt. Giovanni joined FAG as a post-doctoral researcher in June 2015, and his work mainly involves the analysis of fault zones from outcrop and seismic data in the context of our multi-company funded QUAFF2 project.

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 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 on fluid flow, the kinematics and earthquake behaviour of fault systems, and the development of methods for the flow modelling of faulted 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.

DR ISABELLE DE ARAUJO TELLES

Dr Isabelle Telles Research Fellow. Isabelle holds a PhD in Civil Engineering and has experience in the Oil & Gas industry, working in Software Development and 3D Modelling and Numerical Simulation problems in Geomechanics and Reservoir Engineering. She worked with Petrobras, as a researcher and software developer in a project for the modeling and numerical simulation of fluid flow in fractured porous media and then with Schlumberger, as a software developer and geomechanics scientist. Within the group she is developing ideas and software for studying the structure of fault zones. Isabelle is particularly interested in geomechanics, hydraulic fracturing and reservoir engineering.

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.
