Elisabeth Walter




Since I am at the beginning of my scientific career, my research interests are still relatively broad. Nuclear and particle physics are the sub-disciplines that sparked my interest and pushed me to pursue physics at the university level. However, due to the growing significance of climate change, I also took extracurricular classes in environmental science, which eventually led me to choose geophysics as a minor subject. Here at KAUST, I plan to study carbon dioxide (CO2)-based geothermal systems in sedimentary reservoirs as a possible source of sustainable energy and way of climate change mitigation.
