Ida Lykke Fabricius is professor of petroleum engineering geology. She holds a B.Sc. degree in geography, a B.Sc. degree in chemistry, an M.Sc. degree in geology (mineralogy), and Ph.D.  and dr. techn. degrees in applied geology. After completing her M.Sc. degree, she worked a few years as a petroleum geologist before joining Technical University of Denmark as a teacher/researcher. Her teaching in reservoir geology and applied geophysics is based on research in the same subjects in collaboration with M.Sc. and Ph.D.-students, as well as collaborators from industry and research institutions/universities in Denmark and abroad. The research also includes interpretation of rock mechanical and geochemical information. It has till now mainly focused on chalk, because this sedimentary rock has a large technical interest in Denmark as it hosts reservoirs for petroleum and groundwater in addition to serving as a raw material. The studies include rocks from the North Sea area as well as material collected during participation in Ocean Drilling Program expeditions to the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean . Ida Fabricius has supervised more than 50 M.Sc. students and more than 10 Ph.D. students. Her research has resulted in several publications in international journals.
