Research


My current research is in induced polarization. I am trying to relate fundamental electrochemical properties to the shape of the time doamin IP decay curve. I have been able to show that the shape of the decay curve, or at least the time constants of the decay, is not related to mineral properties but is almost entirely controlled by what is dissolved in the pore fluid.

I have also worked on global geodynamics, especially on the rotation of the earth, earth tides, and most recently superconducting gravimetry.
