My research is focused on the in-situ stress measurement from the oriented cored rocks. I am using Deformation Rate Analysis (DRA) and Acoustic Emission (AE) to investigate the rock stress memory and aim to develop a cost effective laboratory method which could be effectively applied for stress measurement with reasonable accuracy.
