The Energy Applied Geomechanics Laboratory (EAGLe) explores the mechanics and physics of natural porous solids for applications in the energy industry. Research topics include mechanical stability of deepwater wellbores, methane recovery from microporous organic rocks, methane hydrate-bearing sediments, and geological carbon sequestration. The methodology combines laboratory techniques and advanced imaging tools to understand and model diverse geomaterials for cutting-edge engineering applications.
