MY RESEARCH


ROCK MICROSTRUCTURES



  • Rock analouge and ice microstructure development during in situ deformation experiment cycles: A new techniqual setup, software development (FAME; Fabric Analyser Microstructure Evaluation) and geological impact.


  • Rock microstructure analysis of deformed quartz and natural and artifical ice.


  • Crustal shearzone microstructures

REGIONAL GEOLOGY AND TECTONICS



Regional geology and tectonic evolution of the Cambori├║ region, Southern Brazil, Western Australia and Macedonia.

FRACTAL GEOMETRY



Development of the Mapping of Rock Fabric Anisotropy (MORFA) and map-counting methods for determination of rock fabric anisotropy and inhomogeneity.


Software development FROST (Fractal geometry based rock-structure analysis) and application to magmatic and metamorphic rock fabrics.
