Martuganova, E.


I am a geophysicist working as a postdoctoral researcher in Applied Geophysics & Petrophysics section. Before joining TU Delft, I was employed by GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences, Potsdam, where I did my PhD. I defended my thesis at TU Berlin. My doctoral research was focused on the application of vertical seismic profiling acquired using distributed acoustic sensing for the exploration of geothermal systems.



Currently, within the framework of the SHARP project, I work on seismic data analysis for carbon-capturing storage (CCS) applications. The project aims to increase the accuracy of subsurface CO2 storage containment risk management through the improvement and integration of subsurface stress models, rock mechanical failure and seismicity observations. The acquired knowledge will be applied to CCS development strategies in different regions of the North Sea.
