Subsurface monitoring with subsidence and compaction measurements

2.30 - 3.30 pm - Politecnico di Torino, DIATI door 3, Meeting room, first floor

Speaker's Bio: Peter A. Fokker is a Senior Scientist in the Department of Geosciences and Technology at TNO, NL. He studied physics at Utrecht University. After his PhD he joined Shell, and later TNO, the Dutch Institute for Applied Scientific Research. His main research interest concerns reservoir geomechanics and coupled modeling, where he studies phenomena like subsidence, induced seismicity, and geothermal systems.
Dr. Fokker is a world expert on geomechanics. He started researching human-induced subsidence around 2000 and over the years has collaborated on this topic with many national and international partners. He then developed advanced research on coupled modeling, mostly in the context of induced seismicity. Dr. Fokker is connected to Utrecht University as a guest researcher in rock mechanics. Since 2015, he has been a member of the UNESCO Land Subsidence International Initiative. Fokker’s total number of publications contains 63 Journal Publications and 47 Conference papers with over 1600 citations. The h-index is 23 (source: Scopus @ June 2024).
