Martin Mai, Ph.D.
Professor of Earth Science and Engineering
Building 1, Level 3, Room 3114
The faculty of Earth Science and Engineering is housed in the Physical Science and Engineering Division. In our research we apply experimental and numerical methods to study physical and chemical processes in the atmosphere, the oceans, in shallow soils and in the deep Earth. The work of students and scientists in Earth Science and Engineering addresses important problems related to oil recovery, mapping renewable energy resources, and quantifying and understanding geological and tectonic processes of the Earth. We then transform our fundamental research into applications related to quantitative hazard assessment (natural and human-induced), environmental safety and sustainable economic development.
