My research interests involve the integration of 2D and 3D seismic data with well data to understand deep-water clastic depositional systems in a variety of structural settings. I focus on:

1. The architecture of deep-water deposits, particularly slope-channels and mass transport complexes, through use of quantitative methods

2. The nature of sediment transfer from continental margins to deep-water basins and its impact on reservoir distribution and architecture.

Current Research Projects

Healing phase top fills over mass transport complex topographies: Trinidad, Gulf of Mexico, Morocco

Past Research Projects

Controls on Late Neogene deep-water slope channel architecture in a bathymetrically complex seafloor setting: A quantitative study along the southeastern Caribbean plate margin, Columbus Basin, Trinidad
