Dr. A.D. (Alexandros) Daniilidis

My research is focused on field development of geothermal systems and specifically the quantification of the energy and economic performance of geothermal fields under uncertainty. Using geology, physics, statistics, reservoir engineering and programming I try to answer the following questions:
How can we better use geothermal resources in terms of energy and economic output?
How does geothermal energy impact other subsurface activities?
How can geothermal energy contribute to a sustainable energy supply?
