Hydromechanical phenomena at the pore scale and their upscaling

This special section of Geophysics is dedicated to studies of hydromechanical phenomena at the pore scale which complement or extend the classical understanding of rock poroelasticity. In the process of upscaling coupled hydromechanical phenomena of fluid-saturated porous media, classical theories of poroelasticity neglect certain pore-scale effects, which may strongly affect geophysical acoustic measurements in the seismic-to-sonic frequency range.

16th Rock Physics Influencer March - April 2018

Tiziana Vanorio

Tiziana got her MS and PhD from the University “Federico II” in Naples, Italy. She then joined the Rock Physics group at Stanford for her post-doctoral research, working on the rock physics of volcanic rocks and clay-bearing analogues. She started her career in Europe, in France, at the University of Nice Sophie-Antipolis, as a Marie Skłodowska-Curie awardee. Then, in 2008 she got the degree for a habilitation thesis based on independent scholarship, thus receiving formal qualification to professorship the same year. Read more
