My dissertation focuses on the analysis of the architecture, stratigraphy, sedimentology of shelf-edge deltas and the
connectivity between these features and other depositional systems on the adjacent slope and basin floor. Primarily
through the study of outcrop examples of shelf-edge strata, my work addresses the role of processes at the shelf edge
in delivery of sediment to the deep water, a fundamental step in the formation of deep-water hydrocarbon reservoirs.
