Dr Christopher Rochelle
I have over 20 years research experience of various aspects of the geochemistry of fluid-rock interactions. This includes extensive experience designing, constructing, operating and interpreting experimental investigations into fluid-rock interactions over a wide range of temperatures and pressures, and in the management of the work programmes.
Gas hydrates: their relationships with sediments and porewater, and their mechanism of breakdown.
Geochemical impacts of supercritical CO2 and CO2-rich fluids on host rocks, caprocks and borehole infrastructure under deep basinal conditions.
Laboratory experimentation at elevated pressures and temperatures.
Mechanisms of reaction of highly alkaline fluids with rocks surrounding potential cement-based radioactive waste repositories.
