Committee Members


I conduct structural interpretation and analysis using outcrop, seismic, and well data to better understand the structural architecture of Texas basins for seismicity research.

Research Interests:
- Crustal deformation, particularly brittle processes
- Geometry of structural hydrocarbon traps and the sealing capability faults
- Geophysical techniques in support of structure, tectonic, and petroleum studies
- Geologic field methods and geophysical data acquisition
