Research

Research Statement

My research is broadly aimed interpreting the sedimentary record as it relates to basin evolution. * What controls sedimentary packaging and facies distribution through space and time? * How can we interpret and distinguish between eustatic, tectonic, and climatic signals in the ancient rock record? * How does basin evolution influence hydrocarbon potential and petroleum systems development? Examples of research topics are listed below. For more information about ongoing and future projects in basin analysis, sedimentology, and/or petroleum geology
