Dr Lee Hosking

Research Staff — MEng, PhD
Joining Date: 01/07/2010

T: +44 (0) 2920 870497

Lee’s research interests lie in the computational modelling of coupled thermal, hydraulic, chemical and mechanical (THCM) behaviour in the geoenvironment. He is particularly experienced in the study of reactive transport processes in fractured rock in response to high pressure gas injection and displacement. It was in this area that he developed a theoretical and computational modelling platform as part of his doctoral research at the GRC.

I joined Geoenvironmental Research Center (GRC) in Nov. 2010 and am currently involved in Seren project. SEREN is £10 million European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) funded project. I lead the Ground Source Heat pump package and my current primary responsibilities are to ensure effective alignment and address expertise gaps for on-going and new research work and providing strategic leadership and guidance in developing, implementing a coherent research for sustainable intensification in the Ground source heat pump technology for Small and Medium scale enterprises.

Dr Muhammad Irfan

Research Staff — PhD
Joining Date: 01/07/2011

T: +44 (0) 2920 876264

Dr Irfan is working in the Geoinformatics work package of the SEREN project. His core areas of research are Spatial Decision Support Systems (SDSS), Web GIS, GeoApps, Geodatabase and spatial analysis. He has recently developed an integrated, multicriteria, spatial decision support system, incorporating environmental, social and public health perspectives, for use in geoenergy and geoenvironmental applications. This system utilises a number of artificial intelligence and multicriteria spatial decision analysis techniques to enhance the effectiveness of the spatial decision making process.
