Mike is co-director of the Gulf Basin Depositional Synthesis Project (GBDS), an industry-supported research project that assembles and synthesizes well, seismic, and other data to establish a basin-scale depositional history of the Gulf of Mexico. His work is focused on Cenozoic depositional system. He is interested in quantifying how sediment moves between depositional environment, particularly between shallow marine and deep-water environments. He is interested in how fluids move in the subsurface and on stratigraphic barriers and baffles to flow.
