Simon Emmanuel's lab at the Institute of Earth Sciences, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem

My group explores the way water alters the physical and chemical properties of rocks, with a focus on nano-scale processes central to hydrology and the oil and gas industry. We use a diverse array of methods, combining cutting edge lab technology, state-of-the-art modeling, and field work. Current research projects include:

  • Quantifying weathering mechanisms in carbonate rocks
  • Imaging water-rock-oil interaction at the nano-scale
  • Analysing mechanical properties of rocks and minerals at the nano-scale

I am always looking for creative and talented students with backgrounds in Earth Sciences, Chemistry, and Physics to join our team. Students in the group are part of a dynamic research program that is pioneering exciting new projects at the interface between hydrology, geology, and geochemistry.
