Prof John Walsh

John Walsh

John Walsh founded the Fault Analysis Group with Prof Juan Watterson at the Department of Earth & Ocean Sciences in the University of Liverpool, in 1985.  He became Director in 1996 and oversaw the re-location of the Group to University College Dublin in 2000.  It has published more than 120 articles in leading international journals and special publications, and is one of the most cited structural geology research groups in the world.

The Group is recognised as a leading international team in the study of the geometry, growth and hydraulic properties of faults and in applying its research outputs to solve practical problems encountered in hydrocarbon and mineral exploration and production activities. They have strategic research links with many key industrial companies and Prof Walsh has been Distinguished Lecturer for EAGE (2004) and AAPG (2007).

Prof Walsh takes a prominent role in Irish geosciences. He is a member of the Geosciences Committee of the Royal Irish Academy, a past Board Member of the Institute of Geologists of Ireland (which is linked to GSL) and is Director of the newly formed Irish Centre for Research in Applied Geosciences (iCRAG). He actively collaborates with and supports the work of the Geological Survey of Ireland and the Geological Survey of Northern Ireland.
