Jeurg Matter several research interests in the intersection between geology, climate change and energy. He is especially interested in geologic carbon sequestration and how fluid-gas-rock reactions can lead to secure and permanent sequestration of industrial carbon dioxide. Currently, he is working in three overlapping areas:
- CO2-water-rock interactions and reactive flow in deep aquifers
- Fluid flow and solute transport in saturated media
- Subsurface fluid injection and geomechanical stability of reservoir rocks.
