Williams, Molly

Research Interests

Engineering geology, nuclear waste, clay mineralogy, fracture mechanics, induced seismicity, geothermal energy

I have a wide range of interests—from nuclear waste and carbon capture and storage to microstructural characteristics of faults and fractures and mineralogy. I’m especially interested in environmental and energy-related research topics within the earth and engineering sciences. If you’re interested to work with me on any thesis project, please feel free to contact me.
