Dr. Fred Beekman – Utrecht University
Dr. Fred Beekman is assistant professor in the Tectonics Group at Utrecht University. His expertise as geophysicist is the numerical modelling of (large-scale) tectonic deformation processes. His research interests include the geothermal characterization and evolution of sedimentary basins; the modelling of stress/strain/fracture distributions in basins and reservoirs, and the coupling of analogue and numerical modelling techniques in geosciences. He has been involved in several (inter)national collaborative research projects, including TOPO-EUROPE, SUBITOP, LEAN and GEOCAP.
