Dr. Marie Macquet

Postdoctoral Researcher

Marie completed her Master of Science in Planetology in 2011 at the University of Nantes (France). During her masters she received a research fellowship at the Instituto Geofisico in the Escuela Politécnica Nacional de Quito (Ecuador), working on the studying the micro seismicity of the fore arc of the Nazca plate's subduction (Northwestern part of Ecuador).

Marie received her Ph.D. in 2014, working on the crustal tomography of the Pyrenees using ambient noise correlation, under the supervising of Dr. Anne Paul and Dr. Helle Pedersen at ISTerre laboratory, University Joseph Fourier (Grenoble, France).

Marie started with CREWES in January 2016 and she is currently working with Dr Don Lawton on the monitoring of the CO2 storage. Developing monitoring of the CO2 injection and storage is an important way to improve the security of this method. Future research will include quantifying the feasibility of using the ambient noise correlation for the monitoring of the CO2 storage. If the resolution of ambient noise correlation does not reach the resolution of the seismic acquisition, it can probably give us a good first-look of the subsurface changes due to CO2 injection.
