Edouard is working on his PhD in Geomechanics with Prof. Grasselli at the University of Toronto. He received a MSc in Geophysics (2018) with Prof. van der Baan, as well as a BSc (2015) in Geophysics, at the University of Alberta. During his MSc studies, Edouard’s research focused on cellular automaton and simulation of earthquake sequences. His research interests are utilizing geophysical methods to get a better understanding of geomechanical processes. Currently, his research focuses on geomechanical modeling of faults, fracture propagation, and acoustic emissions.
