Eva Caspari

Biographical Summary

Eva Caspari graduated from TU Bergakademie Freiberg, Germany, with an MSc (2009) in Geophysics and received a PhD (2014) in Geophysics from Curtin University, Australia. During her time in Australia she was involved in the CO2CRC Otway project focusing on the effect of scale and saturation on effective properties of porous rocks for seismic monitoring of CO2 sequestration. Before joining the Applied and Environmental Geophysics Group at the University of Lausanne as SCCER postdoctoral fellow, she worked for one year as research associate at the Department of Exploration Geophysics of Curtin University. Her research interests are in reservoir characterization and seismic wave propagation in porous and fractured media.

SCCER-SoE Responsibilities

Investigation of relationships between seismic properties and characteristics of fractured media based on numerical simulations as well as field and laboratory data. A main focus will be on the connectivity of fractures which in turn determines the hydraulic properties of fractured formations.
