  1. Laboratory experiments and analyses
  2. Stochastic modeling approaches
  3. General theory of surface reactions

Microbial interaction with mineral surfaces

  1. Modification of the inorganic baseline of mineral surface reactions
  2. Organic material on mineral surfaces

Diagenetic reactions and their variations in space and time

  1. Siliciclastic systems; analysis of paragenetic sequenecs
  2. Spatial anisotropy of cementation at multiple length scales
  3. Evolution of secondary porosity
