Doug Angus has been involved in seismic research for over 15 years and has published on a diverse range of problems, spanning theoretical seismology, global seismology as well as hydrocarbon, carbon storage and engineering scale problems. His core expertise is in elastic and acoustic waveform simulation of seismic body-waves. He is involved in various energy studies related to modelling/monitoring geological storage of CO2 and nuclear waste, and conventional/unconventional hydrocarbon reservoir characterisation (see Seismic Geomechanics Group). This research is heavily multi-disciplinary, involving the integration of seismology, rock and petro physics, hydro-mechanics and geodesy. As well, he is active in global and theoretical seismology, concentrating on the structure of the crust and lithosphere using receiver function modelling and analysis, as well as waveform modelling of seismic anisotropy.
