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.
