Klaus Regenauer-Lieb

Klaus Regenauer-Lieb is a geophysicist and applied mathematician with more than 30 years’ experience in Geothermal Energy and Reservoir Engineering. He holds a German Diploma in Geophysics from the University of Kiel (Germany). His postgraduate degrees are a PhD in Geology from the Geothermal Institute, University of Auckland, NZ, and a Habilitation in Geophysics and Geodynamics from the Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz, Germany. As Postdoctoral researcher he worked at the University of Minnesota, the Swiss ETH Zurich, and the CSIRO. He held Professor positions at Johannes Gutenberg University (Germany), the University of Western Australia, the University of New South Wales, and Curtin University.

Prof Regenauer-Lieb is the Director Research at WA School of Mines: Minerals, Energy and Chemical Engineering and has an affiliation to the Institute for Energy Transition in charge of Renewable Energy. He is Adjunct Professor at University of New South Wales. He is well-known in the field of mathematical geophysics, having pioneered new techniques for multi-scale, multiphysics modelling of porous media based on fundamental physics, including the link between Earth’s heat, its chemistry and its mechanical behaviour.

Prof Regenauer-Lieb is our Co-Lead in Program 2: Carbon Catalysts for Renewable Energy with Zero Emissions.
